CLIENT

The Soci­ety of Graphic Design­ers of Canada (GDC) has been an advo­cate, voice, and resource for Canada’s graphic design community.


APPROACH

For this annual report we sought to not only uti­lize unused mate­ri­als but rethink effi­ciency in itself, adopt­ing many steps, meth­ods, and con­cepts to truly embrace sus­tain­abil­ity and pro­duce this book in an envi­ron­men­tally friendly man­ner. This included con­jur­ing ideas where we could elim­i­nate the need of using fresh mate­ri­als alto­gether. Our biggest smile comes from using oth­er­wise dis­carded make-readies. We took these sheets from other com­pleted jobs to use as our main stock: fold these together and you’ve got your­self a blank can­vas; paper that would have oth­er­wise had to undergo the process of being “recy­cled”. The size of the book even mat­ters, as it takes advan­tage of the opti­mal sur­face area per press sheet, need­ing less trim­ming and wasted paper. Plus, it’s eas­ier and cheaper to move through the postal sys­tem. Lastly, the book uses only two spot colours, reduc­ing the amount of ink needed.
