This simple, cute logo comes steeped in deep meaning.
The frog symbolizes change, communication and connection.
The frog symbolizes change or transformation, in the way that it metamorphosizes from a tadpole, slowly growing, changing, adapting and transforming into a frog. Unlike the caterpillar that turns to mush in a cocoon before it emerges as a butterfly, the frog maintains a physical form but slowly changes over time. The same way that we change, slowly growing and adapting through our life lessons, challenges and transitions.
In many cultures, the frog symbolizes communication. In traditional Haida art, the frog is often found sharing its tongue in exchange of knowledge and power, supporting other creatures to access their own inner abilities and strengths. The frog's song is believed to contain divine power and magic, representing the common ground or voice of the people. One song (uni - verse).
The frog symbolizes connection, not just through it's voice, but also in it's life. Living in two worlds, on land and in water, this creature connects the physical and the spiritual planes, traversing and inhabiting both the natural and supernatural realms. The frog is one of the primary spirit helpers of Shamans.
The logo shows a frog in the form of a figure 8. The number eight represents harmony, balancing the material/ physical world with the immaterial/ spiritual world. In this balance comes order and peace. The eight is the upright infinity symbol ∞ which signifies limitlessness or eternity, recognizing the boundless potential of all of us.
The number 3 found in True S3lf, is not a typo!! It was chosen because it represents mind, body and spirit. The number three is often thought of as the number of the divine or the sacred, it is thought to be auspicious -- think Holy Trinity, the Three Treasures of Daoism, Three Jewels of Buddhism, make three wishes, three tests of the hero. In numerology it is the number of inspiration, creativity, joy, kindness and compassion.
