GGG at MediaBistro’s Ebook Summit

 

Graphics Gone Green debuts at the eBook Summit in NY

Last month’s Ebook Summit in NYC was informative and gave us many opportunities to show n tell. The audience was mainly publishing types (editors, authors, agents, publishers and distributors). Read reviews of the speakers and events here.

Graphics Gone Green had a table at the event, and we generated a lot of interest and buzz at our table. Here are some pictures.

The following week, mediabistro’s blogs, GalleyCat and eBookNewser sent me these questions to answer:
They asked for some some practical tips for how publishers can set up an environment-friendly policy; and what the eBook revolution will mean for the environmental footprint of publishers.

My replies were posted on GalleyCat and eBookNewser. Good press.

A book is born

After a year and a half, it was a true labor of love. Even feels like giving birth–euphoria and utter exhaustion.

“Graphics Gone Green. Ways to Go Green Without Losing Your Shirt,” our PDF-based ebook is ready. All 157 glorious pages with thousands of links, hyper-linked x-refs, video interviews and more. It’s aimed at creative professionals who wish to make their workflows more sustainable. Erica and I thought long and hard about how we designers like to learn and process information. Then we designed the ebook’s interface, appearance and navigation accordingly. For people who like to read a printed page, we offer a book (printed one at a time) from Blurb.

We really like how it turned out. Hope you do too. I’ll post a sample chapter and also the colophon. Check it out!
