What's That Logo About?
liminal stories symbolized
The Liminal Stories logo symbolizes the “exploration of personal change.”
Liminal means “Intermediate between two states, conditions, or regions; transitional or indeterminate.” Its derivation traces back to Latin for “threshold.”
Liminal Stories explore experiences surrounding such thresholds.
The spiral is considered one of the oldest and most powerful symbols in the world and has multiple historic and cultural meanings. In the context of this logo, the spiral symbolizes growth or change. It bridges the gap or threshold between two states, conditions, or regions, represented by two black semicircles.
The color black has various meanings including mystery and suspense. Black can include the emotions attendant with crossing a threshold to new experiences. Or, even remembering things in the past that have been occluded. Such experiences may involve drama or trauma, as well as matters which may be revealed as benign or promising. They may result in positive personal change.
The color orange is often associated with change because it is vibrant and exciting. It can represent new beginnings and also represents autumn when leaves change color and the days grow shorter. Orange can also be associated with energy and movement, which can be relevant for someone who is looking to make a change in their life, or the vigor necessitated by circumstances that demand change, whether that constitutes new thinking, life adjustment or even upheaval.
Hence, as stated earlier, the Liminal Stories logo symbolizes the “exploration of personal change.”
