Carbon Rush

Every designer’s dream is to do good work and of course, design for a special cause. I have finally been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of something awesome. What is this book about?

I quote from The Carbon Rush website:

Hundreds of hydroelectric dams in Panama. Incinerators burning garbage in India. Biogas extracted from palm oil in Honduras. Eucalyptus forests harvested for charcoal in Brazil.

What do these projects have in common? They are all receiving carbon credits for offsetting pollution created somewhere else. But what impact are these offsets having? Are they actually reducing emissions? And what about the people and the communities where these projects have been set up?

THE CARBON RUSH takes us around the world to meet the people most impacted. They are the least heard in the cacophony surrounding in this emerging “green-gold” multi-billion dollar carbon industry.

The aim for this design was to portray a greedy, harsh environment and industrial feel. It was achieved with the help of textured typography, married with a splash of envy green.

The interior of this book carries a lot of high resolution images that can be recognized from the film, making it an interesting and easy read. Typography dominates in areas where points of interest arises and is almost the bench mark of all chapter headings.

You can purchase The Carbon Rush here at Amazon.com
