time and again

It's hard to go far in South Korea without seeing uses of geometric patterns in everything from objects to architecture. The prevalence of these patterns is one of the influences we've injected into the graphic look for the Olympics broadcasts (and probably not surprisingly, one of the things I've gravitated toward most.) You may have caught some of that if you've seen it on air, but I'll also try to post some of that later. As I understand it, a lot of patterns come from a Korean tradition of finding meaning and order in nature and are said to often have meanings like love, happiness, and good fortune. Even if only decorative, it's cool to see how timeless they can be in all kinds of uses.
