> DESCRIPTION

The Urban Forest Project, an unprecedented outdoor exhibition, took root in New York City in Fall 2006. One hundred eighty-five of some of the world’s most celebrated designers and artists employed the idea or form of the tree to make a powerful visual statement on banners that were displayed throughout Times Square.

The tree is metaphor for sustainability, and in that spirit the banners from the exhibition were recycled into totebags designed exclusively for the project by Jack Spade. Profits from the sale of the totebags went to Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships and the AIGA/NY Mentoring Program to sustain the next generation of design talent.

The totebag sale ended in May 2007.
