Re-nourish’s project calculator helps designers minimize waste on any print project. It is used by designers all over the world, but is currently not available in the metric system. That is why they are looking for a volunteer who can help create this functionality. The application is built with PHP. If both Re-nourish and the volunteer is enthusiastic about the collaboration, there are future plans that are possible to implement. For example, currently the project calculator tool only works with rectangles, it would be interesting to use irregular shapes (for example for packaging design).
Re-nourish is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides online tools advocating awareness & action for sustainable systems thinking in the communication design community. We are, at the moment, just two people who want to make things better. We believe that ‘good design’ values people, the environment, and improves lives.
