Urbanstax

So I set up a new etsy store where I stock 'remixed' items. It is called Urbanstax. I enjoy making new things out of old so this will feature paper goods made out of 'repurposed' paper, shopper bags made out of old plastic bags, and so on. Hopefully the shop will evolve as I go on. Just my version of doing the green thing.

I have started off with a collection of envelopes featuring Danish urban design strategy. They are fun because the are maps/plans on the outside and text on the inside. Some of the text talks about water strategy, conservation of old buildings, developing of green parks and so on. I like that each one is of the same place but slightly different because it is talking about another strategy.

They are mainly in a bold but simple graphic style in blue, white, blue and grey. A few of them are brighter colours.

Have a look, give me your thoughts. http://www.urbanstax.etsy.com

A big thank you to Rekindled for doing a feature on Urbanstax and the envelopes. Do stop by her blog and say hello.

Oh yeah, have a great easter weekend too!
