Signs Made From E-Waste

As a company who is committed to learning how we can be better stewards of the materials that we routinely use and  discard in our work day, I love it when I come across a great idea. A trade magazine that we subscribe to (SignCraft) recently featured the work of a talented designer from an article that was featured in the blog of Make Magazine: The Istanbul designer, Yasemin Artut created a very unique sign with the creative use of recycled materials. 2 Words – Too Cool!

Creative use of recycled materials









Built for an e-waste competition, Istanbul-based designer Yasemin Artut made these “E-letter” signs for Kadir Has University. The sign is made from one piece of aluminum with circuit paths etched on the surface. The circuit boards come from former PC motherboards, mice, and remote controls, and have been cut to fit the respective lab letter. The letter is then backed with LED lighting.

Eco Excellence
