The design is directly inspired from the word HOPE in capitals. The check can be defined as a grid where the word is inserted.
Then that word starts to repeats itself, becoming something a bit abstract : if you don't know it's the root of the design you don't see at the first sight that there is the word HOPE.
And that's the way I see how hope could be spread among us. If you don't pay attention to it, it looks like it doesn't even exists, that there is no hope… but once someone shows you that "of course there is hope", you start to see it once and then you see it everywhere !
The original design is the green one since the color of hope is known as being green, although I made two different colorways to show how it can be declined.
