Katrin Spiess and Sue Labouvie were invited to guest edit the American issue of the British journal Landscape & Art (published summer 2003). Based on their incredible journey meeting and connecting with American eco-artists, writers, and activists throughout the country, they were inspired and determined to develop and build a similar network here in the United States.
Sue Labouvie and her colleague Max Heim have worked for many years to promote ecological design and use their creative talents and the resources of their design firm,
Studio L'Image, to promote livable cities and ecological architecture. They are advocates for pedestrian environments, promote bicycling as a healthy transit option, and through information design build connections to nature trails, public transit and walkable neighborhoods. A few of their graphic and information design projects are shown here. For more information, please visit their website at www.studiolimage.com.
