Happiness: the Tribute 21 Plate Challenge

Competition Details

Leave Your Mark

by Olivia Bradateanu


This design carries a simple message with a profound meaning. It speaks to the connection between us and our environment by placing a fingerprint within the leaf outline. We share the bond of life on this planet and we need to treasure it and live in harmony with all living things. The graphic goes further with the statement “leave your mark,” encouraging present and future generations to strive to make a positive impact in this world and create happiness in their own unique way. The font expresses a certain childlike innocence while the overall composition is simple yet eye-catching and fun.

The aesthetic of this plate design is fresh and contemporary in order to appeal to as many people as possible. The intent was to create a graphic that is beautiful and versatile enough that it can appear on a full dining set, in different sizes and colors.
