  • 10 ways we put ECO into Design

    Arts & Culture, Environmental Design


    1. Exhibition showcases that use no mains power from the buildings supply to light the internal art objects and can be positioned anywhere without the need for clumsy or inconvenient electrical connection points.

    2. Museum & retail design where the visitor flow provides a sustainable energy source which reduces the buildings carbon footprint and running cost.

    3. Exhibition stands designed to use environmentally friendly, responsibly sourced and recycled materials with low toxins. Designs that permit the simple adjustment of the stands construction for reuse rather than being destroyed after each event.

    4. Installation contractors located close to project sites saving dramatically on transport of both materials and people, all of which contribute to a reduced carbon footprint.

    5. Interior designs that use many of the principles above but also ensure products are from responsibly & fairly sourced suppliers.

    6. Eco lighting design solutions that lower power consumption reduce heat gain and UV from light sources, with the added advantage of only having to re-lamp every 7 to 10 years.

    7. Graphic designs sending all our proof via pdf in an email format and keep paper out were possible. Naturally any paper we do use comes from sustainable resources.

    8. Corporate design we encourage our clients to opt for the Greenest paper possible which is totally chlorine free (TFC) or tree-free paper (for example Hemp).

    9. Design solutions aim at designs that last, explore environmental impact, plan sustainable designs with a smaller footprint, use nontoxic materials …

    10. Walk the Walk our website has a black background design unlike most websites who prefer the white version (example Google). Did you know that if Google made their homepage background black instead it would save 1000s of tons of greenhouse gases every year? Black is new the Green White!

    It's good to be green
