The word “meraki” means to put your soul, heart, and creativity into your work; when you leave something of yourself behind in the work you do. MERAKI is a college preparatory institute primarily focused on high school students. Besides assisting students with test prep on the SAT, ACT, TOEFL, etc., MERAKI also trains students on high level memorization techniques, such as emotive visualization, and anxiety-reducing/confidence-building methods through mindfulness meditation, aromatherapy, yoga, boxing, eating healthy, and self-reflection.
I think we have more than enough flower/sun-shaped designs to choose from now. Please start experimenting with other ideas and concepts. If you’re having a tough time thinking of an original design, you may consider using the following Chinese character as inspiration: 思
思 means to think, consider, or reflect. The character above means to plant (like to plant a seed, plant, or tree to nourish) and also refers to a cloud (shooting for the stars). The top character also refers to the brain and was even written to look like one. The bottom character 心 refers to your heart and soul. So, together, the character holds meaning of thinking and reflecting with both your mind and soul (brain and heart).
Feel free to play around with various abstract designs using this Chinese character (思）as inspiration if you cannot think of anything else on your own.
Thank you again for all of your guys’ hard work!
