'Hex' Board Game
Aimed at Designers
Any time you're feeling creatively uninspired or lamenting that you just don't have a big enough budget to create something extraordinary, remember what Pauline Capote accomplished with a home inkjet printer, some paper, and a sharp designer's eye. Challenged by her Packaging class at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco to come up with a board game aimed at designers, Pauline created one right after our own CMYK hearts – "Hex: The Clash of Colors."
How to Recycle
Paper the Right Way!
There is a lot of mystery around recycling. Each municipality accepts different items making it even more difficult to figure out what is and what isn't recyclable. I think a lot of people want to recycle properly, they're just a little confused on where to start. So, here's my guide to recycling paper. Of course, always check with your own waste management facility, and remember the zero waste lifestyle is about recycling less NOT more.
Pantone Creates World's Most Unignorable Color
To really draw attention to its campaign, United Way – a Canadian network of non-profits that work locally to raise funds and improve lives in their communities – roped in Pantone to use a bit of color theory and create a new hue that can't be ignored. For its new campaign, Show Your Local Love, United Way wanted to make local issues unignorable. So it partnered up with the Pantone Color Institute to develop a unique shade aimed at highlighting issues.
Installation Sends
Inspirational Message
The goal was to send a consistent, inspirational message to all United Therapeutics (Unither) employees, partners, and guests about the mission of sustainability. This project created awareness about the symbiotic relationship between humans and buildings through real-time data-visualization installations. Ultimately, this is a building unlike any other—a living, breathing entity with its own consciousness and the employees and guests within it are a crucial part of the system. Every design decision was driven by the net zero goal.
