Compostmodern PDX An Evening of Sustainability for Graphic Designers and Industrial Designers

About the Event Compostmodern PDX will feature video highlights from the San Francisco Compostmodern event and Brian Dougherty, author of Green Graphic Design (greengraphicdesign.net)

Dougherty, a founding partner at Celery Design Collaborative in Berkeley, Calif., and a leader in the field of ecological communications design, will discuss the ability of designers to send a socially and ecologically responsible message to both consumers and corporations. Signed copies of Green Graphic Design will be available for purchase by cash or check.

The original Compostmodern conference was presented by AIGA San Francisco and the AIGA Center for Sustainable Design. That event brought together designers, manufacturers and business leaders to produce sustainable solutions for the graphic design and industrial design communities.

Attendees will receive access to footage from the complete San Francisco Compostmodern conference. This seven hour video series will be available on-line.

Compostmodern PDX was developed as part of AIGA Portland’s growing focus on sustainability. The event is sponsored by Mohawk Papers.
