    Hi Rebecca,

    I’m a graphic design grad student currently working on my thesis, which focuses on the integration of biomimicry into the graphic design process. I plan to discuss both the difference between biomimicry and sustainability, and how to integrate biomimicry and green/sustainable design into the graphic design process to come up with the best possible solutions to our design problems.

    My question for you: After working with a green mind, what are some successful examples and unsuccessful examples that you’ve had to face in design?

    Dear Rebecca,

    I am trying to submit an entry for HauteGREEN to, but my email keeps coming back with errors. I’ve tried multiple time and I’m not quite sure what to do. Do you know where I can send my submission form?
