Green T

Cutting the grass is about as far as my green fingers stretch, but I like this logo-growing project by Judy Kameon for the New York Times.

Kameon created a T from 130 plants

“Together with her husband, photographer Erik Otsea, Kameon created a T from 130 plants. And in a postscript sure to warm the hearts of environmentalists, no flora were harmed in the making of this artwork. In fact, they’re all bound for a new demonstration garden in Kameon’s office and showroom.”

Reminiscent of Colors project where Mu Chen used soil to recreate classic logos.

Design-related is this interior signage at the New York Times, created by Pentagram, as well as a write-up about the exterior signage.

Update:
I love this New York Times logo LEGO.

  1. Well that Lego explains why the New York Times doesn’t have a lot of spare time for fact checking these days.

  2. The fact the logo can grow in sense is a cool idea. I must confess though – I much prefer the Lego design. The fact that it’s a building as well just topped it for me. So creative – I love it.

  3. It’s the first time I notice that the “T” looks so much like the Arabic letter “ح”, cool :)

  4. Those images are awesome. Would it be acceptable to use the one titled “the finished product” as a background in a personal blog (say if the credits were in the alt text)? I understand if it wouldn’t be.
