Turn a patterned image into a Customized shape
The logo makes a lot of information or subjective data visible at a glance. The symbolic shape in flag has meaningful data such as history, tradition, and philosophy. These symbolic symbols play a significant role when you need to show impact factor about tremorous data and lead various types to unification or appeals their representative roles at a glance. So even small groups of people design a single symbol, draw it on a T-shirt and wear it together as a team work.
A single explanation of a complex image is the power of the logo. The same goes for products. The LV of the famous fashion brand, Louis Vuitton, was created in 1854.
For around 200 years, the Louis Vuitton logo and image are still receiving many people and is engraved as a luxury image. Compressing these various images and showing them as one makes it easy to remember for a long time, and these times are concentrated and become a brand power.
This type of pattern has the advantage of having a powerful impact and popularity quickly compared to conversation or text. And The symbolic shape has many personal and invisible philosophies, histories, and traditions that can be condensed into one. I liked the many patterns painted on the ceiling when I visited an old palace in Korea. There is such a deep Korean aesthetics that cannot be expressed in words anymore.
Hieroglyphs were the first written characters used by primitive people. It had a symbolic shape, religious meaning, and life patterns and styles. It is said that when people look at a space, they have a mentality to focus on one place by synthesizing data. So when space is given or remained empty place, they have used patterns to fill that space.
Especially, I still can't forget the pattern of comb-patterned earthenware that I saw in the national history book in high school. Surprisingly, our ancestors made earthenware using such sophisticated designs so long ago. I can feel the wisdom and style of our ancestors who tried to fill the space by drawing V shaped or straight lines here and there.
Such a pattern is a form of art that we can easily come across, like the vessel above. There is art in various lifetime products such as curtains, clocks, blankets, and bowls and plates that we see when we first wake up in the morning. It is found that such art can be applied in more diverse forms when a picture image is converted into a logo or symbolic shape and made into a product. Below is an introduction to my works made in the form of pictures and logos.

In this sense, I tried to make the existing patterned work into a symbolic shape.
After making this, I collected what I liked when it became a product.
Using this logo or symbol mark makes it easier to create products for sites such as Redbubble.
