Re-nourish: Sustainable design for a healthy people, planet, and profit.

How do the decisions you make in your design practice today affect our lives in the future?

Join AIGA Hampton Roads and Yvette Perullo, of Re-nourish, as we discuss what designers should consider during the design process in order to cultivate an ethos of sustainability.

Key points include:

  • Ways to implement sustainability in your practice

  • How to overcome barriers such as cost

  • How to advocate for sustainability within the industry

Specifically, we will address some of the critical problems facing our planet, the concept of regenerative design, and how to be mindful about the consumption of natural resources with client work.
