It wasn’t about where to invest our money… it was regarding the font used for the title of the feature story. He was trying to figure out if the typography was digitally created, or whether it was handmade artwork.

Fortunately, paper is also fairly easy to recycle, and comes from a renewable (albeit slowly renewable) resource.
I attended the recent Sustainable Brands ’13 conference themed “From Revolution to Renaissance” and gained insights into the future of business and brand sustainability. Some sustainability conferences are all doom and gloom about the future, but this one had an upbeat attitude with a lot of hope based on solutions.
