This is my take on the Loves Green competition. I have seen lightbulbs with plants inside them before, but this idea is more about surrounding ourselves with natural solutions to harness renewable energy, instead of surrounding nature in man made solutions. 7 colors with an additional UV sensitive yellow ink, that further cements the idea that this is all about the power of nature.

Click the words in the bottom right to see what the design looks like inside, outside in the sun, and on a t-shirt.

Thanks so much to so many people for all of the help.

Ericdiaz for the flash of inspiration, Jublin for the flash...of...presentation, and the countless people that gave me feedback over the last few days.

fantastic job, brilliantly executed. I saw it was a bulb immediately and then focused in on all the details.

i think the uv thing is just a gimmick, I'd prefer to see it just printed with the rays {=-)

wow looks great! I love how the bulb is made up of the negative space

Dude, this is so great! I love the way you used the UV ink and I love the placement and size. My only hope is that WHEN this prints it also gets printed in kids' sizes. :)

Nice to see you playing with varying line weights. While this design is interesting, my aesthetics liked the first simpler version best. 4

I would argue that the message itself would be lost because people would not, as a whole, recognize the silhouette of any other type of bulb. What is used to tell the message is not necessarily, intrinsically tied to how best to follow through on the message. The Iconography of the traditional bulb makes the concept easily recognizable, and being able to recognize the concept is the most important part, in my opinion.

Further, the concept is about renewable energy and not energy efficiency. So while the two compliment each other to some extent, it was not the intent of this design to specifically convey energy efficiency as much as it was to find renewable, clean sources of energy, such as sunlight.

Ste7en - I agree that this bulb is much better. One message a a time, and this one is much clearer how you have it.
