HUMAN BY WONDERLAND #29
A newsletter about design and creativity, and how they contribute to a better world.
Hello everyone, and happy December 1st! Welcome to HUMAN, Edition #29.
For you today, we’ve got:

In our humble opinion, not all of the blog posts that we write need to be business-focused. Sometimes they can just be. And by that we mean, they can just be about a nice topic that we found interesting, but that doesn’t have a particular lesson or insight. It’s for this reason that we’ve decided to write about our recently founded book club.
Sustainable Digital Design x It’s Nice That
A special thanks to Liz Gorny and the team at It’s Nice That for featuring the State of Sustainable Digital Design report last week. We’re thrilled with the response we’ve received from the creative community since announcing the report at Dutch Design Week 2022.
For those of you who missed it, the report outlines the environmental impact of unsustainable digital design practices as well as actions that can be taken to counter them. You can download the report free from Sustainable Digital Design.

Designed for Greenpeace Magazine DE, designer Vébé created a unique, all-black image out of nothing more than creativity and paper. The goal was to “put forward all the things which do not please me in this world” while leaving a star at the top “to suggest hope” to the viewers. More here.
