VMPA Senior Thesis

Milena Calkowska
Graphic Design


Hi, I’m a graphic designer focusing on making designs that are good for the planet. My thesis is diving deep into how we can create cool stuff while being eco-friendly.


Graphic design has always played a part in the waste we see on our streets and in landfills. Posters, pamphlets, business cards, are all examples of graphic design that is created, distributed, then thrown out. The environment is impacted in the creation of paper waste and the usage of plastics. The goal is to create solutions for graphic design to become more environmentally friendly.
