How are Human Nature Designs Products Made?

Wondering how Human Nature Designs’ products are born and raised? Here is a sneak peek at all the work that goes into your favorite nature-inspired products!

Ideation

      To create my designs, I use a mix of personal experience, photographs, and research to determine what the feel of a national park or travel destination truly is for people. For each design I decide to create, I put together a “vision board” of photos, quotes, articles, and more as a basis for the design. Once I have a foundation for the location, I will often freehand sketch a few (very basic) design ideas on paper or in Procreate.

        Creation

            Adobe Illustrator is where I play with shapes, layouts, and colors (often for hours) to come up with the perfect depiction of the destination. Check out the process video below to watch my work in action on the Steamboat Springs design.


                Sustainable Manufacturing, Fulfillment, and Shipping

                    For T-Shirts and Sweatshirts, I work with a reliable, high-quality print-on-demand drop shipper (Printful). Drop shipping basically means that I don't hold inventory; instead, the products are printed after the order is received.

                    • Drop-Shipping for Sustainability
                      One out of every five garments
                      reaches a landfill without being worn once. By choosing print-on-demand, I can make sure my apparel is created only as the order is placed, creating less fabric waste than conventional apparel brands.
                    • Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing for Sustainability
                      All designs are printed Direct to Garment (DTG) for a more sustainable, eco-friendly approach that requires less water and solid waste.
                      Printful uses Kornit machines and inks. Kornit uses high-quality, water-based vegan inks that they formulate, test, and produce in their own factories. Kornit inks are non-hazardous, toxin-free, and biodegradable.
                    • Sustainable Shipping
                      Around 78% of Printful orders are delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled. Strategically located fulfillment centers allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, and it also helps with reducing the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders. Depending on where you are, your orders are printed and shipped directly from the facility that can do it most efficiently!

                    I do the printing myself for all reusable travel mugs and camping mugs. Once again, everything is made-to-order so nothing goes to waste!
