EPA design

EPA design

This  EPA document is one of our inspirations. It is not the design as such, but more the thinking process and concept behind it. To connect things in new and higher form of intelligence. 

The 1977 Environmental Protection Agency Graphic Standards System has been reissued via Kickstarter. “The Manual demonstrates how efficient, informative design has been used to advance federal programs for the public good. It’s a relatively unknown story, so the reissue makes for an important piece of historical excavation and conservation.” (source: AIGA).

“When the governmental agency was first set up in 1970 by president Richard Nixon, one of its top priorities was to consolidate numerous state offices in order to effectively carry out its goal of “working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people.” Despite this aim for efficiency, the EPA’s graphic design and communications was staggeringly inefficient, with millions of dollars wasted annually due to non-standardized formats and a constant need to design every new communication from scratch.”
