We don’t just have a cool new logo, it’s our personal story that we wanted to infuse into our business.
Penguins are a symbol of our relationship…Rewind to 2005 when we first started dating, one night after hours of talking on the phone Chris and I finally said goodnight and fell asleep. Chris had a dream about us and penguins, it was in that dream he knew that one day we would be married. He told me about the penguins so I looked up a bunch of facts about them and found out they mate for life, and so began our love affair with penguins. The first Christmas we were dating we got each other a penguin stuffed animal without the other knowing and it was the cutest surprise ever! Since then it’s become a tradition of ours to get each other some sort of penguin, whether it be a stuffed animal, socks, coffee mugs, key chains, or little figurines it’s just a little something we always do for each other.
Penguin love is similar to ours in the fact that they mate for life. Their courtships generally begin with both visual and auditory displays. Males display first to establish a nest site and then to attract a mate. The male will stand still and place it’s head on its chest before inhaling and give a courtship call for 1–2 seconds; it then moves around the colony and repeats the call. A male and female then stand face to face, with one extending its head and neck up and the other mirroring it; they both hold this posture for several minutes. Once in pairs, couples waddle around the colony together, with the female usually following the male. One bird bows deeply to its mate, its bill pointed close to the ground, and its mate then does the same, this display of love is the inspiration for our logo. A penguin returning to the nest sometimes brings its mate a stone as a courtship gesture, which reminds us of the engagement ring. When a penguin finds its mate everything they do is for love. Just as the penguin chooses its mate and they start a new life together so do couples when they join in marriage, from the exchanging of a ring or a stone, to the bowing of a head and committing to a love that will last for life. We want to create films that capture love for life.
