Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a logo can show-at a glance – what a company, project or group is doing, providing focus to their work. Melinda Turriff, who recently rejoined the Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence team, created this graphic for Live Our Heritage to say it all.
It has five tiles – one for each of the four components of the project – surrounding a fifth (representing the heart and hands). They symbolize the people who are the strength of the community, celebrating how we rely so much on volunteers especially in more remote regions. The color of this tile is red – the color of love and the lifeblood of the community. Through this tile, we offer a special tribute to Evelyn Annett and Kathy Dodson who not only helped Heritage get its start, but also supported, with many others, so many local causes and events, year after year.
The other tiles, on Heritage colors, are easy to identify:
- A footprint on a golden background, reminds us of the pleasure we have walking along the beach and symbolizes the expanded trails.
- A white and blue tile depicts the mosaics that will decorate the seats we will build – blue for the importance of the river in the area and white for the spray when the wind is up.
- The needle and thread represent the quilt and textile arts our neighbours will be creating – the black representing the rocks and shoals of the area.
- The camera on blue signifies the new photos we will be taking and the old ones we will collect and enjoy -blue being the clear skies we hope for (although who doesn’t sometimes enjoy a fog- or snowbound day to read and relax by the fire!).
