We do a lot of work on the environmental front, recycling, water quality, storm water mitigation, reducing your carbon footprint…this week we are putting some of that into practice. We’ve been going through our sample closet and have been paring down our vast collection of printed samples, sketches, presentation boards, tear sheets and project files of all sorts, and we have filled up an entire recycling bin. We’re not even halfway finished with our sample purge. We have been lugging around work from the past 30 years, work for all sorts of clients and industries, from financial services firms to entertainment companies to public policy organizations. Some of our samples have outlived the enterprises themselves, if you wanted a brochure from E.F. Hutton, a film festival program or thumbnails of a World Trade Center poster you’re out of luck. We hope that all of this design work will recycled into something useful and informative. And we’ll keep on creating work both online and off, with an eye to sustainability and a little less hoarding.
