The artwork was developed by Mr. Petr Vorasicky, a graphic designer and artist living in Prague, Czech Republic. “The pattern of the veins on the leave is always inspiring because it represents life and the way nature works. Human is just a part of nature and we need to respect the way nature embrace lives on this earth,” Petr explained his idea of using the vein pattern of the leaf in this logo.
