When I run out of design ideas, I often turn to botany. Plants always come through for me as design solutions when all else fails. Each plant species is a beautiful, elegant design solution in itself, a varia­tion on the theme for its botan­ical family. Plants are very coöper­a­tive. You never have to guild the lily.

Alvita did a nice job re-purposing the art from their new herbal tea packages for their home page. It’s more than that– the botan­ical illus­tra­tions form the founda­tion for the site design. There is  a nice atten­tion to details, using a decep­tively simple user inter­face, while allowing the plant art to speak for themselves. And they sell themselves.

A special thanks to artists Julie Julak and Barbara Terkanian who helped with many of these plants as part of my studio to complete this project on schedule.
