    Any thoughts behind the logo/wordmark, and putting it so prominently on the cover?

    I really like the product, thinking of ordering it - but the religious/freemasonry symbol got a little too much of a cult-vibe for me to have it on display. :)

      I appreciate the feedback! I'm proud of the brand, it's designed for individuals who are tired of cookie cutter brands and genuinely want to 'reject the ordinary' and own a product that is really well crafted and they love using. Nike use the tick logo and "just do it" - it's not that much different.

      Here's an example from one of our first customers: https://twitter.com/Joanwestenberg/status/1436175190489067561
