I came across these designs playing with shapes to creating interesting patterns. I then found them is Computer Arts magazine. They talk about the the branding style of QORE and how the gold finishes it off. From the example above, you can see the difference the gold makes. Although, without the gold, the patterns are interesting on their own but adding the gold gives it a bit more texture and makes it pop a lot more.
In the image below, the magazine talks to the designers, Truf Creative, about how they came to the end design. QORE thought symbolism was important to them and should be part of their banding.
