According to the National Geographic, since 1900 more plants have gone extinct in the wild compared to birds, mammals and amphibians. While it may be pretty hard to tell when a specie is definitely vanished, a survey estimates that about 571 species of plants have gone extinct in the wild in the last 250 years.
Being struck by such information, we decided to pay homage to these plants by designing a digital bouquet, a romantic attempt to celebrate their forgotten beauty. Of course we did it our way, experimenting in the creation of a unique visual language. We played with the idea of decay and with the ephemeral nature of all things, including digital data. The pixellated look refers to this volatility, and we hope that these illustrations will spark curiosity and wonder about the beauty and diversity of plant life, both past and present.
