IPA President Quote
IPA president Steve Bonoff remarked, "IPA launched its recent webinar series, Environmental Sustainability in the Premedia Arena, to focus not only on the greening of a creative, premedia or print operation, but to examine how these companies can help their clients make sustainable choices. In the fourth of our six-part series, Susan Palombo offered a terrific example of how forward-looking design agencies are utilizing their knowledge of sustainability to grow their businesses and add value to their clients.
