We encourage screen free Sundays, and as such it would be unusual to see any posts on Sunday from us!
Our logo has been developed to meet an intensive criteria.
The words colours and shapes reflect the meaning of our group.
The three colours are contrasting in hue, texture and feeling.
The charcoal/weathered timber indicating the fragility of nature
The shiny hard copper represents endurance of nature
The pearl, foam white is the cyclical yet randomness of nature
It was developed over a year - the "a" then evolved so that a simple distinctive graphic could be utilised if required.
