Fern Leaves, A New Beginning Is Set By Fern Fronds
Fern leaves unfurling find their association in New Zealand with the koru symbol. It is essentially a spiral, that stands for new beginnings and balance.
With this in mind it seems like the koru symbol underlies the template design “Fern Frond”.
Transparent Shapes Result In A Flexible And Monochrome Design
In fact half transparent circular shapes give the fictive view in to the center of a fern where many fern fronds strive to unfurl. Monochromatic tones reflect the degree of layered transparencies in white or grey that ultimately add depth to the surface pattern.
The new contemporary design template allows anyone to tap in to their creative source by adding their own choice of background color.

Fern leaves In Natural Setting Surround An Emerging Fern Frond
The fern photo below shows an example of a rolled up fern leaf. Botanists call it fern frond. The one domineering the photo is on the verge to unfurl and expand into a wonderful and delicate leaf creation.
Holding such a strong symbolic meaning of ‘new beginnings’ and ‘balance’, it is natural that the fern frond frequently inspires new creative applications. Illustrators, graphic designer, jewelers and artists and many professionals of related trades find opportunity to add the symbol to their creations as shown below.
A photo taken at the Arataki Centre, a touristic highlight indeed close to Auckland, shows a creative example to instill meaning in an ordinary pathway. In this case the koru symbol inlay in the pathway adds the symbolic meaning of ending the bush walk. At the same time while entering the grounds a the beginning of new experience commences. The Arataki Centre is a place of learning and opportunity to connect land and the people.
