had to come up with a little design identiy for an upcoming special section of our publications... its about "going green" which is dumb since we're a publishing company that uses a shitload of paper (recycled, but still) anyway... heres what i came up with..

C&C and suggestions are welcome

I really enjoy the brush work man. Good use of them. Haha that's funny about the irony of it all. I guess if there was one thing I didn't care for, it would have to be the background. It's sort of blah, but of course it does make the text stand out. Awesome design eos.

i think it's awesome. very clever. only thing i'd change is remove the 2 evergreen trees coming off the 'N' They look unnatural sideways and upside down.

i agree with skate on the evergreens, other than that I think it looks awesome. although it does kinda seem like there's too much dead space in the middle of it all, since the header is up at the top.

yea looks good i would say do a less is more approach like skate said but a little bit further, i love the tree and roots on the G and i say you just leave them in place and remove all the other foliage as it doesn't look flowing.
