Green People: Lifecycles + Lifestyles

Aespire

Aespire

Aespire is a communications and design firm that helps nonprofits, foundations, colleges and universities develop strategic outreach programs that inspire advocates, engage donors, and advance meaningful causes through brand alignment and communications with clarity.

One of the firm’s core operating principles is to work with meaningful causes; sustainability is integral to those causes for both internal and external stakeholders. They manage the business sustainably ‒ (operating from a LEED Certified building since 2005) ‒ and have received recognition from the business community for their internal sustainability practices. For client engagements, green design thinking is factored into strategic recommendations and processes, and implemented in design solutions. Active in communications and design for economic development, advanced energy and sustainability initiatives, educational and public/private partnerships look to Aespire to lead them with sustainable design thinking; and to provide green design solutions that align with the client’s values and stakeholder perceptions.

“Sustainable design solutions are important to the sectors we serve; practicing and being fluent in sustainable design thinking and best practices assures our clients that we support their desire for sustainable design while promoting the greater good. We demonstrate to clients how the goals of sustainable design and the practicalities of economic sustainability are complementary.”

The Oberlin Project

The Oberlin Project is a joint effort of the City of Oberlin, Oberlin College, and private and institutional partners. With a goal of being climate positive by 2050, the Oberlin Project’s aim is to revitalize the local economy, eliminate carbon emissions, restore local agriculture and forestry, and create a sustainable base for economic development. Green design thinking was part of the conversation from the beginning: a small supply of business stationery was printed by Chicago’s Consolidated Printing Company using sustainable printing practices. Emphasis on digital communications enables The Oberlin Project to continually minimize the impact on non-renewable resources.
