    A Measurement Tool Towards Circularity

    How to develop a visual language that serves both as a visual identity and as a tool to inform about sustainability?

    The new fashion brand follows a clear objective: becoming an effective tool to fight today’s climate emer­gency.

In collaboration with sustainability consultants, we have designed a visual barometer as a measuring tool and communication piece.

  • Geo—Design: Junk

    All That Is Solid Melts into Trash

    What is the secret code of physical, chemical, and national identifications regulating the worldwide business of transfrontier shipment of waste?

    The exhibition platform explores global systems of discarded things.

Junk has created a global trade in waste that uses the identification code HS3915.

  • The Relationship Is No Longer Garbage

    Plastic Ban and Countries Diplomacy

    In the global system of waste exports and imports, where does plastic waste end up after China’s import ban?

    In 2019, Canada repatriated 69 containers of junk following a six-year diplomatic dispute with the Philippines. Since 2018, China’s import ban has diverted waste to neighbouring countries, creating potential economic opportunities and environmental disasters. A graphic tracks the new junk trade alongside a staged conversation between the President of the Philippines and the Canadian Prime Minister.
