    Amazing. I was wondering through Marylebone Station in April this year, on my way home from a long day. I am thinking "green" when I spot the front cover of April Edition of <a href="">Creative Review</a> (Vol.27, No.4). 'The "It's about time we did something about sustainability and the environment" Issue'. <a href="">Creative Review</a> is quoted to have a carbon footprint the 'equivalent to 1.17 tonnes per month'. Stunning concept for a design magazine I usually flick through in the newsagents, but had stopped purchasing over other leading creative publications (shame on me). The cover of the magazine, well "not the cover" is conceptually brilliant - the magazine this month comes in a polythene bag with the words 'RECYCLE ME" on them. Simple, and stunning. <br><br> "Producing a magazine doesn't seem particularly, er environmentally friendly... Fair comment - though we've made a few changes in the way we've produced this issue. There's no cover which saved 8,700 sheets of SRA1 paper, enough to cover half a football pitch. Pages 3, 4, 41-44, 83 and 84 are all printed on Cyclus, a paper made from 100% post-consumer waste, The subs cards and photographers cards are printed on remnant stock. We've been on something of a learning curve. Our text stock is PEFC certified and, our supplier assures us, comes from well-managed...

    Education, Communication Design


    For anyone who has not stumbled on <a href="">The Sorrell Foundation</a> project, this blog is intended to give a brief insight to a throughly innovative project. With the likes of <a href=" ">Future Lab's Blog: FLUX</a>, <a href="">School-Works</a> School Identity workshops as merely two examples of design's impact on educational reform, the 'Joined Up Design For Schools' project exemplifies this impact to the highest potential. The benefit of design and educational collaboration should be noted by all. <br><br> Truly illustrating how a designer's mindset (or one of a productive creative), can influence educational reform for the future. With an ability to see something as a blank canvas designers will listen to their clients 'wants', 'needs', 'musts', and 'if onlys' to then imagine and produce a new environment, product, system, mentality or mindset. <br><br> John and Frances Sorrell of The Sorrell Foundation set up the <i>JoinedUpDesignForSchools</i> project 'that explores how good design can improve the quality of life in schools by listening to the voices of the consumers.' By inspiring the pupils by asking what <i>they</i> really wanted from their schools, the project is a fantastic insight to what is going wrong with educational refo...
