As designers we are drawn to architecture and landscape and the structures within. For NBS, we created a multi-faceted visual language which drew its inspiration from the ever-changing landscape and urban environment, in colour and graphics, but also with structures and format. Just as a room, building or group of buildings play with the interaction between form, function, colour and material so should graphic design. For Interface, we cheated. Presented with an existing range of flooring, we looked for a connection that would inspire others. The unintentional patterns created by buildings, scaffolding and pavements brought the product to life.
