Sustainable Design

Students in New Mexico State University’s art and industrial engineering departments team up during the fall semester each year to design more sustainable packaging for familiar products in Art 355: Sustainable Packaging Design.
“Typically, the graphic design student would only deal with redesigning the label of a product,” said Peter Fine, NMSU assistant professor of graphic design and Art 355 instructor. “I started working with engineering and rapid prototyping to create more sustainable packaging. Our students go to Target and pick a product that comes in contact with the body in some way – so it could be clothing, makeup, food and mouthwash. A lot of the things from the pharmacy and toiletries section get redesigned in this class.”
