Nicky is accustomed to carte blanche when it comes to designing brand concepts but rarely does she get a chance to work on a project with such a hands-on approach. She was elated to learn of the client’s request to develop a large-scale mandala and/or illustrated representation for the company’s identity.
Since aloha spirit encompasses a history of bodywork handed down from many generations past, the age-old technique of hand drawing was used to develop the brand. Nicky chose pencil crayon as the medium and watercolour paper as the base to give the drawing a more textured look and feel. The larger hibiscus flowers(native to Hawaii) represent the teachers with the smaller flowers representing the students.
