Design Inspiration

Inspired by the bold & visceral experience of neon colors in the evening street lights of Auckland city, and the many festive characteristics found in its night life. This Whale Tail represents the diversity in culture & celebration in today’s society. A mixture of Samoan Tatau (Tattoo) pattern & symbols on the the front of the Tail to highlight the mixture of old traditions, and the overlaying splash of vivid neon colours dripping over and around to visually communicate the continuing flow of fun & celebration today, gives us a world of Fusion.
