  • Puts Independent Tools & Information Into the Hands of Graphic Designers

    Environment, Communication Design

    Renourish_432_ is the industry's most comprehensive free and independent resource for sustainable graphic design. Our goal is to move the industry forward, making sustainable design what design is, not merely what it "could be." We believe the best way to do this is to provide reliable, accessible tools to working designers everywhere.

    Our team, consisting of three designers (two of whom also teach design at the university level) spent a year and a half developing Re-nourish as a way to bridge the gap between sustainable design theory and practice, and to help designers integrate better decision-making into their everyday design process.

    We offer a free suite of tools and information that include:

    • Heavily researched primers on everything from paper and print to packaging.
    • Searchable paper and printer databases.
    • Inspirational case studies.
    • A project calculator that helps you reduce paper use/cost on projects (and save them to track over time).

    Help Re-nourish Spread the Word

    Re-nourish is constantly updated and expanded based on the input we get from stakeholders at every point on the supply chain. And we've gotten a lot of input - overwhelmingly positive, thankfully. In fact, Re-nourish is now up for a Cooper Hewitt People's Choice Design Award!

    This is particularly exciting for us not so much for the win itself, but because if Re-nourish was to win this award - from such a venerable institution, and the People's Choice at that - we think it would send a really strong message to both the rest of the industry and the public at large that sustainable design is truly, fundamentally important.
