Symbolism of the logo
The logo is a section sign split at the bottom hook with the words Strahl Composite written directly below the split symbol, with the ‘a’ written in umlaut (German).
The section sign, also known as the section symbol, section mark, double-s, or silcrow, §, is a typographical character for referencing individually numbered sections of a document; it is frequently used when citing sections of a legal code. It is also a symbol of the justice system.
By removing the lower tail of the sign, the combination becomes an ‘s’ and a ‘c’ representing the first letters of the two words: Strahl Composite. It is also representative of half of the story told in the way things work/operate in the world, a side we wish to explore.
Justice and history are well-represented in the logo because in order to understand where we are headed, we must understand where we come from and where we presently reside, and use that information to determine whether our actions are just to us and the future generations. These elements are heavily embedded in our story and origin.
