Design by nature

Maggie Macnab explores the subtle relationships of everyday natural processes as the essential metaphors of human experience. Linking cultural iconography and pop/corporate symbolism back into their origins of the natural world, she examines the unending versatility of nature and how its ingenious ways of problem -solving creates beautiful and compelling street art, graphic design, and architecture.
