We were thrilled to receive this project as it was a unique and inspiring establishment. Built in 1958 - The Phoenix, AZ establishment had been designed by a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, so it gushed with mission style touches. The owners expressed their love for the lantana flowers that surrounded the establishment and wanted them incorporated in the mark in some way.
Researching further, we found the Lantana flower was surprisingly geometric in it's natural form. We thought "What if Frank Lloyd Wright constructed a Lantana flower?" This lead to an exploratory of radiant patterns with a mission style influence, see our process below.
