The term 'Fernhopper' is a slang name for a West Coast Forester.
'Hopper" is a person who travels or moves frequently from one place
station to another, and is often used in combination with another
word, like grasshopper. We've always had a love for hiking, camping
and backpacking, and have designed unique products improve the
experience. This is a brand new business, so we do not have existing
images, sketches or documents. If you've been to the Northwest US,
you've seen the lush forests that are covered in ferns. Photos of our
NW forests are inserted below, with pics of the various ferns in this
region. But we hope there is an active or integrated element of the
logo that translates into movement.
I've attached some stylized logos below that incorporate ferns into
their logos. I'm realizing that it's the more simple, stylized
that are more attractive to us. Perhaps these are more "playful" than
Another thought - The word "Fernhopper" is long. It can be divided
into two lines, or two stylized "P's" could become the logo
We hope to find a designer/partner that can help us with this project,
and many others down the road.
The logo doesn't need to be a fern....it could be a muddy footprint:)
