For this poster, I took the word for “Nepal” in the Nepali language and morphed it into a series of roots, leaving one part of the first letter to bloom above ground. I was inspired by the dual quality of the Devanagari script, which contains both curving, organic elements and, at the same time, a sturdy top line holding everything together. I traced an existing devanagari typeface and hand drew the roots. Then, I moved into illustrator and again traced the image, converting it to a vector. From there, I brought it into photoshop and added texture and color.
