Empowerment sits at the heart of Alacran Group, a big word with the power to transform people’s mindsets in an even bigger way. This branding project centers on positive messages that uplift the human spirit while uniting us as one.

An imaginary grid exists in the layout of every communication, print and screen. In this grid, every number is the sum total of the two numbers that precedes it (for example: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8). This sequence named after an Italian mathematician, the Fibonacci Sequence, may be found throughout nature.
Following this grid allows multiple elements in any given design to come together in perfect balance, a vision of appealing rhythms and harmonies. The Fibonacci sequence is typically used in concert with the golden ratio, a closely-related principle also stemming from math.
