CONCEPT: Seeds are a natural metaphor for ideas. A seed, like an idea, starts off small, often with little chance of survival, and grows into something greater. Ideas come from many inspirations and people from varied backgrounds.

Visually, seed pods and ideas suggest collection of elements, rhythm, light (as in highlighting), round shapes, proportion (growth potential) and emphasis (good ideas are brilliant and awe inspiring, like an oak).
