Design Solution / 設計策略
For this project, we have created an organic, fern-leaf shaped logo and elaborated into more basic elements. With a combination of those elements and different colors, we created 16 intriguing plant images and applied them on different items in the store. These basic elements can still be combined and recreated into new plant images, which is just like the mysterious ecosystem of the real tropical forests, with numerous new species waiting to be discovered.
