Patterns in nature—

A Journey into the Patterns of Plants and Animals

Spring 2018

Design a book that contains natural patterns. This book collects varieties of patterns of plants and animals. The reason I created this book is that when some designers want to find inspiration for patterns, they often look for patterns that have already been designed by other designers. However, they seem to have forgotten that nature is also a good designer. 


Unlike patterns created by humans, patterns in the wild are naturally and spontaneously formed. Because these patterns have not been created by human hands, like snowflakes, they can have unique aesthetics. All of these examples are collected in a cohesive design through layout and photography. Let's go for walk in the world.
