The surface design and iconography of Texas

We visited family in Houston this past week and took some time to wander around Rice UniversityTheir mascot was hidden in architectural details all over the place. It felt like (a very sunny) Hogwarts, and I loved it.

See the star above the owl too? We saw it everywhere while we visited San Antonio, Austin and Houston this week.  I like how it's carried throughout the whole state. It's really on just about everything...

Each city also seemed to have it's own set of graphic elements to pull from. San Antonio used this quatrefoil shape, I'm guessing drawn from the missions along the river. Good job on the graphic design, Texas!
