As described above, we want to convey the notion that together we are better just as alloy metals are often stronger with the combination of metals. We also think that it would be nice if there was some element where the logo symbolized a physical space (for example, the alloy metals used as the beams and structure of a building).
As such, the challenge will be to combine visual elements that show strength (from the collective, from the building) with human elements of community.
To see a visual of our first location, please see pictures here:
Here is a Pinterest board with some logos that we enjoy: https://www.pinterest.com/6spoke/al…ogo-ideas/
We also thought it was interesting that the "grasshopper totem" had the following symbolism: The Tehama Grasshopper:
“The grasshopper chooses those of us who are innovators, forward-thinkers, and those who progress in life by unorthodox methods. This is because grasshopper symbolism recognizes tremendous leaps of faith, impressive jumps in progress and consistent forward momentum. Those with this totem are likely to aim high, and achieve amazing feats - they take great leaps where others fear to tread (or jump, in this case).
Another special feature of the grasshopper totem is that it calls to those who have natural clairvoyant abilities. Just as the grasshopper uses thousands of tiny eyes to formulate the "big picture" so too do those whom the grasshopper is called. In other words, those with this totem are visionaries. They see things intuitively, seeing beyond what the concrete world holds, and they use this special vision to see the world with a childlike wonder.”
