This is great, biomimicry at its finest and seems quite practical for product teams to use.
@hassan_hussain Thanks. I wanted to make Design inspiration from Nature easier and less time consuming.
There's no need to tell a designer or an artist, how often we face creative blocks, especially when trying to meet the looming deadlines. The biggest Lego under our feet is the task of generating aesthetics. This book is our solution to making the Design Process easier. We hope it to become a go-to-asset for getting inspired and generating unprecedented aesthetics. The book "Nature of Form" is a collection of Forms, Colors, and Textures extracted from various elements in nature. It covers 150 elements divided into categories like Fruits, Vegetables, Insects, etc. From these elements, 1454 entities have been derived (432 Forms, 231 Patterns, 791 Colors). The extraction of forms, patterns, and colors was a tedious one but the result was a beautiful book, that has the competence to become any designer's most valuable asset. Moreover, as Designers, we are aware of the vitality of 'form' in Design. We tried to understand and experiment on how these forms manifest meaning in them and how we make sense of them. We all possess a visual library that we subconsciously attend to while making sense of a shape or a form. Say, when we see a Daisy, the first thing that comes to our mind is delicate, love, etc. And this visualization process of connecting shapes and colors with attributes, emotions, and moods directly impacts our Designs. The main aim of this book is to simply make your process of inspiration hunt easier. Our campaign is now Live on Kickstarter. Back as early as possible to get maximum discounts.

The design process is an objective tool, which most of us designers use. But what makes an influential design is the subjectivity of it, which an individual designer pours in. While in the design process, we literally search the haystack for a needle (inspiration in this context). This book is not the final result but is certainly a tool, a magnet that can help you search your needle. But that's our take. Let us know what your take is on the book!
