Concept: Pyramid Ales approached me to make a poster with all the local microbreweries to get their respective names and art on the same poster.  Applications for posters are for sale, as marketing and low cost beautiful collector's items. 

Here are three rough draft styles to get your eyes on the prize and help me craft a beautiful template for the microbrewery industry. 

Since there are over 200 microbreweries in the Pacific Northwest, we will only have room for a limited number of logos on each poster.  See under each draft image for estimated number of logos. 

Fonts will be tweaked, and the artwork can be changed easily. 

Thoughts, ideas, questions?  Please contact Timothy Colman or call me @ 206 271 3490.  Thanks!

Clean Water Practices:

Look for ways that this family is helping their watershed and themselves stay healthy!

We can all do our part–one yard at a time!

Love the stream, river, or wetland near your home by helping your family take good care of the plants,
water and soil in your backyard.

• Pick up after your pets
• Use soaker hoses
• Set up a rain barrel
• Keep litter out of creeks
• Make a worm bin
• Leave wildlife alone
• Make a compost fence
• Build a rain garden
• Build a bat house
• Minimize use of chemicals
• Provide water for wildlife

Remember, the more trees and plants that you and your family leave along the stream, the healthier the stream will be!

Low Impact Living techniques use natural processes to help manage stormwater. Innovative and low cost “water smart” practices allow us to build in ways that keep pollution out of our waterways that have immediate and positive impacts. Protect native soils, forests, and prairies by grading and clearing as little as possible when building or remodeling. Capture rainwater in a barrel or cistern and build rain gardens that manage rainwater on site. Use pervious driveways, walkways, and patios that allow stormwater to absorb back into the ground instead of running off. Build green roofs and green walls that absorb stormwater and slow down the run off. Use minimal yard chemicals to protect groundwater and surface waterways.

Imagine a green permeable skin on our city.  The new green American community featuring rain gardens, swales, green roofs, pervious pavers, cisterns, rain barrels, native plants, pervious pavement, and biodiversity.  Restoring natural processes to land that has been paved over so that it can breathe again.

Good Nature's beautiful educational poster has been developed for one reason:  pictures are powerful ways of teaching people low impact development practices.  The front practices listed above are beautifully rendered by artist Teresa Fasolino.  And the back of the poster is full of tips on how to get started.
