An idea


World Eye

That’s the idea: Green

I feel that there are a lot of possibilities with a more abstract phrase/word.  Aside from the most currently common definition today (environmentally friendly) and the obvious definition (um……well, green…), several others come to mind easily:

  • Sickly
  • Inexperienced
  • Overcome with envy

A few other associations come to mind:

  • green belt
  • green card
  • little green men
  • green thumb
  • greenback
  • greengrocer
  • greens keeping
  • green light
  • green tea

Given the breadth of experience and the depth of creative talent in this class, I feel that this would be an exciting topic.

  1. Rave Green (Sounders FC) — I’d love to do that story! I’d probably try to do a Sounders FC story for Toni’s “Seattle” or “Emerald City.”

    Green Party. Energy. Money. Marijuana. Greed. Nickelodeon Gak. Incredible Hulk.

  2. Great idea! I love that this theme has both literal and abstract meanings. I think this would hang together very well as a group, visually and otherwise.

  3. “It’s not easy being green” with apologies to Kermit the Frog – but this really has possibilities, Jeff. Wonder if it has particular significance outside of the US – Ireland, certainly, but how many national flags have green in them…and why?

  4. This totally work, Jeff. The environment, money, Greenland… well, Greenland is probably a stretch, but you get the idea. There are so many possibilities here.

  5. I too like that you could could literal or abstract with this topic.

    One of the first things I noticed when I moved to Seattle was how “green” this city is. It’s so impressive to see how much people really care about our environment here. My local cupcake shop even has a compost so pretty much nothing goes to waste (all the more reason to eat cupcakes)!

    If spread virally to our friends/family outside of Seattle, this could even be a nice little wake up call to the rest of the world that these green efforts are actually feasible.
