The infographic is an important element, because it summarizes the concept of the magazine: giving information, while taking care with the aesthetic and visual look.

DesignCanChange.org, a site designed by SmashLab, explains the problems facing the design industry when faced with the enourmous impact it has on the environment, and serves up resources for finding out what you, in the industry (designers, students and buyers), should do to minimize that impact in a sustainable way.

Challenge

smashLAB started to consider the amount of waste designers are responsible for. The paper and pulp industry is the third largest polluter, and according to the AIGA, their members alone specify or purchase $9.1 billion in printing and paper annually. In seeking ways to help mitigate their impact, smashLAB found few resources directly related to graphic design. There had been discussion, essays, and conferences dedicated to sustainability, but not much in the way of a clearing house for sustainable graphic design information.
