101 More Things Designers Can Do to Save the Earth

POSTED BY on May 28, 2008

When your client’s philosophy is based on creating a soul satisfying experience for its customers, it demands that you rethink how you’d approach their store design and graphics – precisely what Ashley Arhart, Design Director & Retail Strategist at Hornall Anderson, discussed during her presentation today at the SVC sponsored event entitled “101 More Things Designers Can Do to Save the Earth” held at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. Between 200-300 business owners, designers and students were in attendance at this day-long event.

Following, is the list of resources Ashley referenced during her presentation, “Caf? Yumm!: Rethinking Every Project,” featuring one of the firm's recent "green" projects:
