Main Theme

leaves deconstructed

The main theme graphic deconstructed the maple leaf to its bare essence – its veins. The fractal, nested structure of the pattern represents the layered recursion of computer programming. Furthermore, the network that the veins create also reflect the network of information this company represents.
