Graduates Designing for Sustainability

October 09, 2017

Old blue and gold banners around the UC Davis campus are getting new life thanks to Christina Johnson (B.A., design, ‘14) of Upcycle It Now. The company owned by Johnson and her mother Liz Bordessa recently started transforming the banners into bags and wallets.

“UC Davis reached out several years ago and kept reaching out to make it work,” said Johnson, who lives and works in Long Beach. “We’ve had lots of people getting excited about it and some sales are starting.”
