Decoding Form | Ginkgo Leaf

Sarah Lewis

The “Ginkgo Bilobo” is a unique tree, the last of it’s kind from the Ginkgoales family. It first originated in the 15th century in China. The Ginkgo Tree leaves are known for their medical remedies which improve cognitive function. They are still being used today as a natural remedies for Alzheimer’s disease as well as for other benefits.

My inspiration to use the Ginkgo leaf is its unique form. It has a visual recognizable structure that is elegant.
