McCammond wanted to create a unique and memorable visual statement that represents the diversity and energy of the area that is both artistic and recognizable. She wanted to re-invent the City’s iconic symbol, the maple leaf. Her inspiration came from talking with various business owners in Maplewood.

The Starry Leaf is a nod to Van Gogh in the colors of summer; Georgia O’ Leaf represents the earth tones and styles of O’Keeffe, the colors of autumn; and the Blue Leaf is reminiscent of Picasso in his Blue Period with a winter feel.
