If you follow Instagram you may have noticed that we've taken a new friend with us on trips this winter season. We really wanted to make sure he fit in with the family before we brought him on full time.
Here's a recent trip to the pacific northwest where you can see that he snuck on board.
It turns out he fit in!
Ok, so what's what with the owl? We really wanted to find a mascot for our company. Something that really spoke to who we are as storytellers. Enter - the little red owl. The owl has so much symbolism throughout a ton of cultures. For us, he symbolizes our core values.
Little Red Owl symbolizes three big things for us. First, the ability to see what others do not. This means that we take pride in being able to take ordinary moments and see real meaning behind them. It could be as simple as a flower girl looking up to a bride, but having the intuition to know that it's a big moment in that flower girl's life.
Secondly, the little red owl represents life transition. The stories we love to tell are the ones were they have such a huge impact that the person has a life change. The most obvious example is a wedding, where a couple has decided that they are so in sync that they want to pledge their life together. It's a huge and beautiful change.
The third thing the little red owl represents to us is that he is so stinkin' fun. The eyes on this owl have so much emotion in them. From wonder, to joy, to hope. We want to always have in the back of our mind to have fun, to wonder, and to hope through action that we can leave this world better than we found it.
Without further ado - our new Logo!
We are having a contest on Facebook to name the owl! If you have a great name - let us know!
Here's another great picture of his time with us in Seattle and Portland. Also, he's in the timelapse video below!
