Inspiration for the design:

The inspiration for this design comes from the month of May and the beginning of spring. Spring connotes saplings, greenery, and blooming flowers, which while not the main focal point make subtle appearances in the design. A key source of inspiration is the Mercatus AAPI directory itself. A variety of products from the directory are featured in the design to showcase the diverse lineup of products a person could purchase to enhance their lives and support the AAPI community, specifically the businesses listed in the AAPI directory.
