  7. For our latest project for AHEC, we sourced extraordinary paper made from the damaging algal blooms of the Venice lagoon. This fascinatingly sustainable product, Shiro Alga Carta made by Favini is now being made from the blooms of other marine areas. Fittingly, we used it for a leaflet promoting AHEC's Too Good to Waste project at Milan Design Week 2017.

  8. We are thrilled to have passed (again and again...) our global quality and environmental standard audits. We are proud to demonstrate to our clients that we are committed to rigorous quality management in all of our projects as well as sustainability throughout our work and environmentally friendly day-to-day business. The two-day external audits each year put our systems and processes through the mill. We are delighted (and a bit exhausted) as ever to come out on top.
