Famous Lumberjacks & The Story of Maple North

I’ve had a few questions about our Maple North business cards and logo lately so I thought I would share the story behind Maple North’s brand.

Before this company was Maple North, I was rightfully ridiculed by some of my great clients and friends about a marketing company lacking a defined brand. A short while later, while on another call with some great Texans, my uniquely “canook” accent was laughed at (lovingly of course) and the idea was struck to brand this company with a little ‘canadiana‘.

I turned to my great web design and development team and ask them to create a lumberjack themed logo for the company name Maple North.

Big Tim was born.

Ever wonder what other famous lumberjacks are in popular culture? We’ll if your reading this far, you’ve come to the right place.

    Solid list – good call on “Log Diver” as #1 – pure Canadiana. So you’re an online lumberjack then? Chopping down the barriers between company and customer.
