"Design Times Square: The Urban Forest Project brings 185 banners created by the world’s most celebrated designers, artists, photographers and illustrators to New York’s Times Square. Each banner uses the form of the tree, or a metaphor for the tree, to make a powerful visual statement. Together they create a forest of thought-provoking images at one of the world’s busiest, most energetic, and emphatically urban intersections. Following their display, (September 1–October 31, 2006) the banners will be recycled into tote bags and sold at auction, with proceeds going to scholarship and mentoring programs that benefit students of the visual arts. Some banners embody visceral responses to pressing environmental, political and social issues. Others use the evocative power of nature to develop rich patterns and abstract forms that delight the viewer. All contain passion, thought, and energy—qualities that only emerge when the world’s finest creative minds apply themselves to a brief they truly believe in."

My favorite is Scott Pauli's banner of the I heart trees.

    amazing work and the site works in a format that haven't seen before. It transports you to where you have selected to go but it displays other projects quickly along the way.

    The flash is smooth and the work is impressive. Many of the Projects are with BMW. I personally like the clean and simple style/ layouts and photography.

    Some polished and diverse body of works. The website is easy to navigate through. Some of the Information Mapping reminded me of some projects at school. To see all the detail in those types of projects can appreciate all the time it takes to develop.

    For the past 30 years, Manhattan-born artist Marcus Jansen has been defining the term "urban expressionist" with his mixed-media canvasses that blend realism, graffiti, and abstract techniques.

  • Clothes Maker

    Hamansutra - alias Haman Alimardani - says of all the ways people label what he does, he likes the term “clothes maker” best. The Teheran-born Afro-Persian from Bavaria started off with Graffiti in Munich, worked for Advertising Agency Jung von Matt, then studied graphic design in Germany and decided, that fashion would suit him best. Receiving a scholarship for St. Martins in London he started to create his ambitious Hamansutra empire. PingMag met him in New York where he is planning to move next.

    "I very much like the fact, that you have to think about what you wear, how you wear it, in what order you put on your clothes. That is almost like a ritual, a ceremony."

  • Patterns

    He was asked_
    What makes a pattern a good pattern in your opinion?

    A good concept. Plenty of kids can make pretty patterns, but to me a good idea is always far more attractive. Marian Bantjes is a good example for quality.
