Take note that Reduce strives to be a completely sustainable publication taking all aspects of our production into consideration. Printed on a 300gsm recycled uncoated paper stock, using soy inks all sourced through a local printer.”
A personal favourite project of mine, Reduce is a large format (A3) publication where I designed, art directed, photographed and wrote all the content. Talking about sustainable living, an interest of mine I decided that it was crucial to create all the content myself. The publication is printed on a 300gsm recycled stock, the tip-ins on a 200gsm recycled stock and the dust jacket on a heavy 250gsm stock. Trying to be as sustainable as possible, using recycled paper was a must. The publication is bound using a waxed thread and a single page binding method (a variation of coptic binding). Designed to be a collectors piece, this publications opens completely flat and is something to be enjoyed on your coffee table.
