Rashne Green designs environmentally friendly marketing and promotional materials. With more than 20 years of graphic design and editorial experience, Rashne believes that visuals and text must enhance each other to convey maximum impact. She is passionate about creating dynamic visual identities, while decreasing impact on the planet.
She began her solo career in 1997 designing publications, conference materials, and annual reports for health-related associations, and soon expanded into the fields of education, service, and the environment.
As her client base grew, Rashne became concerned by the waste involved with traditional graphic design and printing. An early advocate of soy ink, recycled paper, and sustainably-powered printers, she aligned her design business with her personal aspirations to become an “eco-conscious” graphic designer.
Rashne now works with clients of all sizes, from large national organizations such as the Aspen Institute, a renowned nonpartisan educational and policy studies institute, to smaller clients, including Chicago-based Mary Crane Center, an early childhood development center serving communities in need. Environment-focused organizations represent a growing part of Rashne’s client list. Recycled Energy Development, a company making power production cleaner, cheaper, and more sustainable, used Rashne and her team to create logos, marketing materials, and their corporate website. The Northeast Midwest Institute, a research organization promoting regional economic and environmental quality, hired Rashne to design and illustrate an array of publications.
Rashne has taught in the Computer Graphics Department of the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and was previously a senior designer for Ellipse Marketing and Design, and the Page Group. Rashne began her career as a production artist and typesetter for local publications. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from George Washington University.
Rashne strives to live her life as green as possible. She founded the “Green Committee” at her children’s school, has initiated recycling drives, participates in local clean-ups/green-ups, buys local food, composts, and drives a hybrid. She lives in northern Virginia in the Washington, DC metropolitan area with her husband and two children.
