Using the “Beadwork Revolution” as a jumping off point, I designed a series of graphic elements that I thought would be calm, approachable, and culturally connected to the Métis youth. I wanted to make something reproducible so we could use it throughout the app and keep everything homogenous.
I eventually settled on a series of illustrated flowers inspired by actual beadwork samples given to us by the client. It was a hybrid of modern, clean iconography and classic floral imagery. I combined this with a bright, vibrant colour palette also taken directly from Métis artwork. I tried several different styles of flowers and beadwork, and even some other elements.
