"Hope is the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life."

The inspiration to design this check pattern for people in Bangladesh came from this simple definition of hope. Being english a second language and having a sociology teacher that said reality of people is really the language they speak I decided to take the english definition and express it graphically with the first thing that came to my mind when i read it. how is positive outcome represent graphically? simple.. an ascendent line that goes from nothing or 0 to wherever the circumstance allows it to get.
This is how i decided to take beautiful and bright colors and use them as this positive outcome and growing line that only goes up in whatever way you see it.
