Design For Sustainability Survival Guide

By now, it’s evident that human life on earth quickly needs to become more sustainable. But while the problem is apparent, the treatment is not.  Fortunately, that’s where the Design for Sustainability Survival Guide comes in. Each page of this book provides short and well-illustrated opportunities to help you participate in design for  sustainability projects.

The need to incorporate sustainability in design projects is evident. However, going from ambition to impact is a challenging process. Improving the sustainability of a design involves a myriad of tradeoffs; making a positive change in one area could inadvertently create problems in another. Consumer perceptions of what makes a sustainable product may be at odds with the real-world data, and you and your client need to know how to create a genuinely sustainable message without ‘greenwashing’. When done correctly, however, design with sustainability at its core is a force for innovation.

The cluster of challenges might seem overwhelming, but there’s a shimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Design for Sustainability is jampacked with tips, principles, strategies, and guidelines to inform your design process and to help you underpin your presentations and design reports. This book is not a call for action but a go-to guide that will allow you to participate better in a pleasurable and rewarding activity: reducing humanity’s planetary harm.
