It wasn’t long ago that I posted a Green Party poster that I’d quickly mocked up, writing about how I intend to do more non-work design work — but I didn’t quite anticipate to be doing more stuff for The Green Party of England & Wales. Only, I am doing.
An email dropped in my inbox the other day asking me to take a look at the logo used for Young Greens — the youth branch of the main (and presumably more mature) Green Party. I spent 15 minutes coming up with a few concepts before it made sense to create an icon based around a sapling, which then matures into a fully-fledged Green Party logo / party member.
n. A young tree.
n. A youth.

The artwork is quite messy right now — it definitely needs loads of tweaking, tidying up and correct fonts used (Helvetica is admittedly my go-to-sans-serif when I don’t have the correct font to use) — this was just stripped from a file full of rough concept work… but as a concept, I’m quite happy with it.
