The principle of "Regular Division of the Plane" (now we called tessellation design) established by a Dutch artist, M.C.Escher, had been exhaustively studied by Mathematicians. Thus, we can say that the ball for exploring the beauty of the tessellation originated by Escher is on graphic designers' coat through Mathematicians.
My challenge is to implement the tessellation design for custom design requests from clients in various fields and markets. This time, I introduce my recent work for one of the world largest aquariums, KAIYUKAN, located at Osaka in Japan.

Popular fourteen different animals at KAIYUKA aquarium are designed as tile pieces interlocking with each other to fill repeatedly the plane along the P3 wallpaper symmetry group.
These animals are specified by KAIYUKA and reviewed to meet their requirements including similarities to actual animals, and relative body size differences among the animals.
