Daily Algae is about the design approach of biomimicry (nature-inspired innovation) for ecologically sustainable design. The graphic design industry creates excessive pollution. To solve the sustainability problem, I want to attempt to preserve resources (i.e., renewable or non-renewable) and find solutions by emulating nature’s forms, processes, and ecosystems.
I am qualified to pursue this because designers should take special care to reduce our designs' negative impact on the environment and minimize carbon footprint.

My project's goal is to solve the problem of algal blooms and explore sustainable materials. The purpose is to make natural materials treated as waste beautiful and valuable. Algae offer much potential in sustainable production for things like food, biofuel, and paper/packaging. This renewable, mostly aquatic organism grows significantly faster than terrestrial plants and requires less land.
