Last year, AIGA officially launched the Center for Sustainable Design, of which Marc Alt is a co-chair (along with the Academy of Art’s Phil Hamlett). Today at Cause/Effect, Alt gave a tour of a new site the group has produced that has lots of original content, and a long list of resources created for designers.

But perhaps most exciting is that Compostmodern, an impressive San Francisco-based AIGA conference, is now the official Center for Sustainable Design conference. Next year’s event will be on January 19, and already some favorites like Alex Steffen, today’s crowdpleaser Scott Stowell, Valerie Casey from IDEO and Mark Galbraith of Nau are on the roster.
