ARTWORK: India, Consumerized [Taj Mahal]

After a vacation in India—and 1,100 photos—I decided to continue my Buffalo, Consumerized series with an off-shoot aptly named India, Consumerized.

The following is a horizontal and vertical offering of the famous Taj Mahal in Agra. All aspects of the design motifs come from the architecture of the tomb and the surrounding structures. The logo is derived from the gorgeous in-laid precious stone work glued on the marble, re-appropriated and combined to form an icon in the shape of the actual building. The starburst motif is taken from the interior side of domes, most noticeable in the Darwaza (Great Gate) that must be entered to reach the Taj.
