NMIT holds free sustainable design public lecture

14 May 2012

Glenn Todd, Creative Director, web designer and community collaborator, will hold a free public lecture on sustainable design in the twenty-first century at NMIT's (Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE) Fairfield Campus.

The lecture is part of NMIT's Bachelor of Illustration Creative Arts Forums, a series that explores new ways of contextualising the illustrative narrative.

Glenn is the founder and director of Dvize Creative, a Melbourne-based web design and development agency. Dvize specialises in producing websites for small to medium businesses and non-profit community groups. Glenn is also a founder-member of Bindarri, the Australian Creatives for Positive Change.

Glenn will speak about opportunities for designers to foster positive social and environmental change. These opportunities range from new ways to work to encouraging closer links with the community - both local and global.

Dr Colleen Morris, NMIT's Head of Department Creative Arts (Higher Education), says "Glenn's a local with a global perspective, so he has a lot of new ideas. Sustainability is something we need to incorporate into all fields of the arts, and I'm sure he'll share some new ways we can improve our practice."

Glenn will speak at the Bachelor of Illustration Studio at NMIT's Fairfield Campus, Yarra Bend Road, Building F, room 103, Thursday May 17 10:30 - 11:30 am.
