The authors of The Big Book of Green Design take a wide view of "green" design, including both works that promote eco-conscious products and companies (full disclosure: this is where my contribution falls, on page 103) and pieces that are green within the design itself.

Because of this broad approach, the book contains some examples that I feel have only one of two qualities required. That is, they are promoting something green, but the design is unremarkable, or the design is gorgeous, but the eco-friendliness of the product is borderline.

However, for the most part the examples in this book are beautiful, inspiring and wide-ranging: packaging, posters, products, apparel, and even event/environment design.

The book itself is also nicely designed, with a very solid bare-bones cover.

I would recommend this book for any designer with an inclination towards eco-friendly printing and packaging, or who hopes to develop a niche of "green" clients.

Whether you're looking for examples of green design or searching for companies that promote green design, this book is an excellent resource.

I found excellent examples of both contemporary and traditional design work.

Additionally, I have followed up my research by looking up several of the companies in this book.

I purchased this book to draw inspiration for my sustainable start-up company. It met my expectations. There are loads of great packaging, web and logo examples. Each entry is labeled with the company name, designer (design team or firm) and the purpose of the design project. The front and back covers of the book are made from a stiff paperboard composite material. I found it impressive and that the book itself was in line with its theme.
