A Growing Green T for the New York Times

The New York Times commissioned this growing logo design for their fall 2011 travel issue. Los Angeles-based garden designer Judy Kameon designed and planted the iconic T, keeping in mind shape, texture and a selected color palette.

According to the NYT, Kameon—with help from her husband, the photographer Erik Otsea—created the T using 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."
