57 design

Did you know it's more harmful to the environment to read a book on your computer or e-reader than it is to read a professionally printed version?

When looking to produce anything, it's vital to ensure the people you work with are able to address every aspect of the brief. Sustainability is an important consideration to be included in an intelligent and forward-thinking solution.

Choosing papers with genuine environmental credentials, avoiding metallic inks, reducing print runs and adding recycled logos are a few examples of how to make your product more environmentally-viable.

Telling your target audience about your considerations inspires goodwill and makes everyone enjoy participating.

Slightly confusing? That's ok, at 57 design we will always tailor a solution that cares for the environment and for other inhabitants of the planet, and help you tell everyone how it was done.

57 design is a Kiva micro-lender aiding entrepreneurs in developing countries to help themselves. 57 also regularly works pro bono for local non-profit community groups whose values align with our own.
