We are looking for a family design to represent us! We want to be able to use this design to create a unique visually symbolic identity.
We are a busy family of seven living on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia in Canada. We have 4 boys that play hockey throughout the school year and one daughter who dances almost everyday of the week. The patriarch of our home is a wonderful dad who runs his own forest consulting firm, while balancing carpool and family responsibilities so well. I am a former elementary school teacher who resigned my position in order to spend as much time making everything run smoothly for our business, and most of all, our family.
Our last name is MacLeod, and we refer to ourselves as The MacLeod 7. If our name is included in the logo we would like to be able to separate it from the symbol and display only one or the other in certain circumstances. The logo needs to be simple, yet interesting, clean, and modern looking. I want the logo to represent each person in our family. I'm not sure if I want their initials used but if so, these are the names of everyone:
Ron - Dad
Shannon - Mom
Hudson - Daughter - 13
Landon - Son - 11
Tanner - Son - 9
Cord - Son - 8
Hayden - Son - 6
Oh, and we also have a female GSP dog named Scout and she's one year old.
We would love our design to reflect our love for the beach and the West Coast mountains(starfish, sand dollar, or mountain symbol maybe?) and of course our love for each other. Loyalty, dreaming big, respect for self and others, and laughter are some of the life gems we value most.
I envision my kids holding pride in this design and taking it with them as they move on with their own dreams and life paths (sniff).
I've attached some pictures to give you a feel for our family. :)
