Compost Modern 08 Wrap-up


Sustainability promises to be one of the defining issues of our time, one with profound affects on our personal and professional lives.

For designers, it represents unique challenges as well as tremendous potential — nothing less than an opportunity to redesign how the world works.

Compost Modern 2008, a joint production of the AIGA San Francisco chapter and the AIGA Center for Sustainable Design was once again a huge success this year. Geared towards a wide variety of designers, Compost Modern was

“a day of brilliant ideas, practical solutions, drama, inspiration, eye candy and some tough questions as we explore design’s role in transitioning to a sustainable society.”

Held at the Academy of Art University Morgan Auditorium in San Francisco, the conference featured an impressive variety of speakers.

Although I was volunteering for most of the event and could only catch a few of the lectures, a great round up of the event can be found here.
