Our logo and brand iconography, an abstracted mosaic pattern, brings together the art and science found in the Moorish tile-work of Marrakesh.
Inspired by the mathematical precision, pattern recognition, and outright beauty of the tiles, I decided to adopt the visual for my marketing business.
It speaks to a cross-cultural perspective, a timeless understanding of human desire and need, as well as a deep respect for structure, background, context and logic.
