After the Storm evokes an image after a summer storm, when everything steams and drips beneath a re-emerging sun.
Rise and Shine is a greeting of the sun after a good night’s rest.
The artwork was intended to provide a healthy work environment and promote creativity and employee interaction. It was also intended to respond to the corporate identity and local landscape.
