About the Tote Bag:
I decided to design a Koi fish tote bag. I’m majoring in graphic design, and a big part of graphic design is repetition. I incorporated both repetition (through pattern) and koi fish, which I have always been enamored with. Whenever I see Koi fish swimming in a circular motion (as depicted in my design) I think of balance, and certainty. In my life, there hasn’t always been certainty or balance, that's why I designed this bag to provide it. When your spirit is low, the calming colors and rhythm will lift you up and make you whole again. May this tote accompany you through all of life’s battles and provide you with the strength and certainty to prevail.
