To incorporate a King Protea flower and “seeds” or “roots” into the design somehow. Everything else was up for creative interpretation.
Kings County Office of Education commissioned this work for a podcast they were going to produce called “Seeds of Resillience”.
The idea was that we were going to work a “King Protea” flower and it already kind of has the shape of a crown, so that wasn’t so much of a stretch for “Kings County”. After several iterations I ended up working a microphone into it and packaged it into several shapes until we settled onto the oblong shape to simulate the shape of a microphone; specifically the iconic Shure 55SH.
Sadly, the project fizzled out because it turned out that Seeds of Resilience is a video game and we never moved forward with this because of the name, but this is still one of my favorite designs I’ve done.
