I tell you all of this to introduce to you our new brand, logo and identity for the cutting board business. I’ve taken you through our decision to live out of a suitcase and our new business venture with custom wooden cutting boards. So it’s on to the next step- creating a business identity. First we set the boundaries. Here is what we decided to look for in a name:
- a memory- something that would remind us of something personal (an experience, an object, a time, etc.)
- a connection- we want a name that can resonate with others
- a bridge - the name needs to connect back to the sawmill, trees and ultimatly the cutting boards
- an essence- we want the name to capture the authenticity of the boards
Hmmmm…. days and days passed with ideas coming and going. One four hour road trip was dedicated fully to names and reminiscing on great times. The process was fun, interesting and exhausting. We went through several names and then several logos, but knew instantly that the name and brand we landed on represented all we had hoped it would. It’s a piece of our lives, and a theme we hope you will embrace.
The past few weeks have been an adventure and I cannot express my gratitude to you for your support. It brings me such joy to hear your comments and feedback. Encouragement and support was displayed in abundance from dear friends and family during our recent trip to my hometown of Ozark, AL. I am now experiencing that same support during my time in Mobile. Thank you!
So today, I invite you down an old road to escape reality with us. Sorry, no cell phone service here. Just a few rocking chairs under a tin roof.
