For my Chess Board and Chess Piece design I focused on creating an unique and nontraditional approach.  I added height to the base so hypothetically, when this board is standing, it gives the illusion or appearance of a floating chessboard.  The backgrounds are natural environments to highlight and heighten the effect that the wood grain provides. For the chess pieces I did not want to create a visual connection to the traditional symbols for each piece (King, Queen, Knight, & Bishop), but rather a connection to the text which spells out each piece.  I would hope my design creates a unique surprise for the viewer.  Initially the pieces may appear to simply be an abstract design, however, after the first glance one may recognize the text.
