Now I know what you’re thinking – the Tree Council sounds like something from a Tolkein fantasy involving hoary old oaks debating whether to topple an evil wizard, and I admit that until this week I’d never heard of it either. But that’s all changed thanks to some great new work from Marc&Anna, which was exactly the idea. The London-based duo were asked to help promote the work of the arboreal organisation which helps plant trees in playgrounds and other public spaces and monitors the health of tress across the country.
Working pro-bono, Marc (Atkinson) and Anna (Ekelund) designed this series of leaflets and posters with snappy copy and lovely bark-like backs for the new Friends of the Tree Council scheme, proving that even some fairly unlikely groups can embrace really beautiful graphic design.
