Myna bird and the paisley patterns are the main inspiration for this piece. Mynas in eastern cultures are regarded as symbols of undying love, because they often pair for life. Moreover, since these birds have the ability to mimic human sounds, young men would teach them a few words that could express their feelings, and give them as a gift to the girl they were in love with.

Based on market research, I realized if the name of the company somehow would be represented in the form of a collection, the brand can become more memorable for people, specially young Iranian generation who have high respect for their cultural values, as well as their art and design. (Mina and Myna are essentially the same thing but with 2 different dictations) )
The main challenge was designing a very simple form that can represent brands name as well as having modernized usage of historical patterns.
