Urban Forest AIGA Poster

The Urban Forest Project was originally conceived by AIGA's New York chapter in 2006, where banners created by top designers promoted environmental awareness in Times Square, one of the world's busiest, most emphatically urban intersections.

As a leading city in both design and green building, Portland seemed the natural place for the next phase of the initiative to evolve. Design Portland: The Urban Forest Project will be a series of events in April to unite the community in celebration of collaboration, problem-solving, and greener design choices during the week of Earth Day.

In its initial year, the AIGA selected a variety of local designers or teams of designers, illustrators, photographers, and artists to create banners promoting the week of events 22-27 April, 2007.

I felt like the Benson bubblers are iconic in Portland's cityscape. Therefore, I did a poster reflecting it. Not to mention, I went to Benson Highschool back in the day. Big ups to the Techmen. What! What!
