Tote Bag Design Contest

Tote Bag Design Contest

Los Angeles is home to some of the best designers in the world. So when it came to finding a logo to go on the official city tote bag, I knew that all I needed to do was ask my fellow Angelenos. Use this page to submit your design and/or vote on the designs of others.

With the help of Councilmember Paul Koretz, we're giving away reusable tote-bags across Los Angeles. The winning image from this contest will be silk-screened onto the Los Angeles Tote bag and distributed citywide to become one of the most recognizable images of a new plastic-bag free Los Angeles.

  • Please include contact information so that we may reach out to the winning designer.

KEEP LA GREEN!

As a California native I felt strongly compelled to enter this Tote bag contest for Eric Garcetti. It is my humble opinion that everyone must do their part to preserve the environment for generations to come, and at the very least recycle and re-use. Hopefully this bold graphic will lend a helping hand toward a greener and more sustainable Los Angeles… for every little bit counts.

LA REUSE - Earth Angel Heart by Lightning Bolt Wonder

This Earth Angel Heart is presented to you by LBW a working artist in Southern California.

Lightning Bolt Wonder (Past - Present - Future)

A practicing Warrior Shaman of light, LBW is an old soul whose wisdom stems from having lived many reincarnated lives, including most recently those of an Orca, Frog, Spider and Ant (many times). 

Orca's Wisdom includes:

Creator of the Cosmos, having the ability to convert raw matter into stars, planets and more. Freeing the soul from the physical body, controlling rainfall on Earth, using the vibrational energy of song to heal, assisting humans in finding their soul's song, soul memory, seeing the unseen, teaching the ability to seal soul fissures and energy leaks.

Frog's Wisdom includes:

Cleansing, rebirth, fertility, abundance, transformation, metamorphosis, rain maker and ancient wisdom. Frog is strongly associated with the water where she spends a lot of her life, connected to moon energy and the moon goddess.  They are at ease with the world of intuition, feminine energies, and the magic of nature and mineral elements.

Spider's Wisdom includes:

Patience, receptivity, feminine energy, creativity, weaver of life's fate. Its symbolism has both a dark and a light side, reflecting its connection with life’s many facets. As the weaver of the web, the spider symbolizes the spirit of creation. In Ancient Egypt, the spider was used as a symbol to represent the goddess of the Divine Mother, Neith and in Greek Mythology Athena. In some American Indian tribes, she is the symbol for the creator of the world.

Ant's Wisdom includes:

Hard work, cooperation, community, loyalty, perseverance, patience, purpose, stamina, energy, group minded. Ants are easily able to see future needs and plan for them. Ants are the architects of life and there greatest successes come with persistence. Ants easily work with teams and have a strong sense of community goals.

It is with the wisdom from all his lives that LBW brings to you his creative works.
