Today’s post comes a day late, as I am reporting on the Sustainability Capstone presentations that the seniors just gave Thursday evening. In this class, taught by Claudia Hernandez Romero, students reflect on their studies over the past three and a half years with a particular focus on an aspect of sustainability that informs their practice as an artist or designer.
Myriam Diaz, Communication Arts major, discussed Sustainability in Graphic Design: Considerations for Moving Beyond Materials. She recognized a lack of consideration of sustainability in her field and researched firms that have sustainable practices both in their material choices (inks and papers) and types of clients they serve. Read her full paper here.
