These colorful totem face masks by Trent Whitehead bring out a flashier side of classic mask-painting. With intricately-designed expressions and rainbow-filled patterns, Trent Whitehead combines both dull and bright color palettes into various geometric shapes.

Skimming through his numerous works, it is obvious that Trent Whitehead has a knack for creating an elaborate interaction between shapes and colors. See for yourselves in the featured gallery.

Tribal rhino masks are just one example of how to include this type of appeal. Companies should aim to include nonnative elements into their designs to grab consumer's attention.
