2012 SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AWARDS / by Michael Mazurkiewicz

OCAD University

By Joana Patrasc, second-year Graphic Design student

In just two years, the Sustainable Design Awards have grown from a small competition open only to second-year Industrial Design students into a university-wide competition judged by a panel of impressive experts, an awards reception night and a guest lecture by Core 77’s Allan Chochinov. The creator of the awards is third-year Industrial Design student Mike Lovas, who wanted to encourage his classmates to think about sustainability when they designed their projects.
