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 for custom design requests from clients in various fields and markets.

Popular nineteen different animals at ZOO are designed as tile pieces interlocking with each other to fill repeatedly the plane along the P3 wallpaper symmetry group.
These animals are designed to meet realistic conditions including similarities to actual animals, and relative body size differences among the animals.
