I came up with the concept about 8 years ago. While out on the interstates, I took notice of vehicles with stickers on them from South Carolina with the palmetto tree and crescent moon. I couldn't figure out why we didn't have one for North Carolina
Concord, NC (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
Some enterprising children have partnered with a North Carolina Law Enforcement Officer to pursue new logo idea for the state of North Carolina.
Ruth Jackson, 13 and younger brother, J.J., 11, came up with the idea following a summer vacation to the coast of North Carolina.
"Last Summer our Grandpa Baker took us on a trip down the coast of North Carolina to visit each of the twelve famous North Carolina lighthouses. He had a fascination with these lighthouses and desired to share his knowledge and experience with us," says Ruth Jackson.
The children's grandfather was stationed in Okracoke, NC in 1955 and 1956, during his years serving in the United States Coast Guard.
Shortly after returning from vacation, the children's grandfather passed away. "That's when we came up with the idea to start a business in his memory, promoting the lighthouses he loved," says brother, J.J.
Family friend and North Carolina Law Enforcement Officer, Mark Coyle, had designed and copyrighted a logo of a lighthouse. "I came up with the concept about 8 years ago. While out on the interstates, I took notice of vehicles with stickers on them from South Carolina with the palmetto tree and crescent moon. I couldn't figure out why we didn't have one for North Carolina," he said.
The logo design depicts a lighthouse featuring the state abbreviation - NC - and a brilliant sun. The logo celebrates images likely to be witnessed when visiting the coast of North Carolina on one of the state's famous blue sky days.
Together, Officer Coyle and the Jackson children partnered to launch a new business, NC Logo, LLC. Their website, http://www.NCLogo.com officially launches today.
Headquartered in Concord, NC, NC Logo, LLC is a limited liability partnership that promotes North Carolina's magnificent lighthouses by offering merchandise featuring the new logo concept. Ruth and J.J. Jackson hope to bring the logo before the North Carolina State Legislature in the near future in efforts to have it adopted as the official state logo.
