Taking shapes and patterns from the State’s Native American art and textiles, Maria came up with precise repeated motifs and executed them with fine black lines on a pure white background. There is clarity amidst the complex ornamentation, and the colorful name of the brand simply pops from this Arizona Tea packaging concept.
