Post Waste Graphic Design

HDK Baulan

An evening in two parts with Matilda Plöjel, produced by Illustratörcentrum (The Center for Illustration and Graphic Design) and Svenska Tecknare 


17:00 Lecture: Share this book – or what I learned when I tried to design a sustainable book

Book designer Matilda Plöjel was commissioned to design the book that concluded the design research project Forms of Sustainability. The result was the publication “Share this book”. The challenge for the designer was to make the book as sustainable as possible. A reflection of this process with its difficulties, findings and learnings will be shared with the audience in the lecture.
