We're looking for a logo / design that identifies our farm and that will hopefully be used for generations to come.
I'm thinking along the lines of family crest or the brands of cattle ranches. It will be used to mark tools and equpiment we own. (Or possibly also myself in form of a tattoo)
Since I’m planning to spray paint it on tools and such of different sizes using a stencil or brand wood with a heated iron the design will out of necessity have to be relatively simple.
I might in the future incorporate a motto but for moment it is not part of the design.
In the design itself we were hoping to incorporate something from our norse heritage as well as something that identifies the farm / family.
The farms name is “Nystu” and means “new house (or farm)” in English. Since my last name begins with an S and my wifes begins with a V I thought maybe a design with for instance 3 points of a compass would be interesting.
West is spelled with a “V” in Norwegian so it works out fine :). The farm is located in a long and narrow valley called “Vuttudal” so that also works in that respect.
As for the norse heritage part I was thought the rune “Jera” from the Elder futhark meaning “year or harvest” might be a nice touch and symbolize the farm part.
As an atheist I’m also partial to the symbolism of the wolf Fenrir (the god killer) but that might be getting a bit out there
As you can see we’ve given the design some thought but you are free and encouraged to come up with totally different ideas of your own.
Keep in mind the stencil part though :)
If you have any questions or if there is anything I can clarify please don’t hesitate to ask.
