New beginnings are symbolically connected to the unfurling ‘Fern Frond‘ that is also the name of the design. In New Zealand a spiral reflects exactly this state of a new fern leaf and is known as koru.
With this in mind the tote parades the leaf design. Basic circular shapes capture the essence of fern leaves before unfurling. Significantly small circles follow the outer line of a larger circle and represent the small delicate leaflets. Once fully extended these form the fern leaf blade. In order, to achieve visual depth in a monochromatic design the circular shapes overlap and return a variety of shades.
In this case the mood-board reflects the spirit of the design ‘Fern Frond’. Equally important to the composition is the statement t-shirt that shows a black circular spiral with the descriptive text ‘New Beginnings’.
New Beginnings, A Statement For A New Year
