There’s a direct correlation between placing value in branding & design and experiencing economic success. Companies that increase investments in design outperform companies that don’t by 40%.

BRAND ORIGIN

The brand name is inspired by the self-cleaning mechanism of the lotus that evolved to repel water and contaminants from its surface. The only plant to flower and fruit simultaneously, every dawn the lotus emerges from muddy bottoms of ponds and streams to stretch open at the water’s surface; as the sun sets, it closes and sinks back underwater to repeat this cycle each day.

The lotus’s symbolic origins trace back millennia, inspiring the Bhagavad Gita, Chinese poetry, and Buddhist philosophy. In Ancient Egyptian mythology it was the symbol of the sun, creation, and rebirth.

 

The lotus represents clean aesthetics and the cycle of creative work. We strive to create meticulous solutions that are unified, recognizable, and timeless across a range of mediums and experiences.
