“A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing.”
Hahn Design Studio’s logo is inspired by the Hahn Coat of Arms for the original houses of the surname in Germany. The name itself can be traced as early as the 13th Century in the former German State of Prussia. The root of the name Hahn comes from the German word for Rooster, and thus, the Coat of Arms and Crests for these Hahn ancestors usually portray one or multiple roosters, crowns, and/or helmets (shown below).
We proudly take on that sigil and use the Rooster as our symbol and part of our brand. The Rooster can awake us to the day to look for new possibilities and opportunities!
Digging deeper, the Rooster as a symbol has various meanings in cultures and mythos around the world. For some, the Rooster symbolizes Dependability, Punctuality, and Responsibility for their proud crowing at first light. For others, the Rooster symbolizes Courage, Confidence, Forethought, Truth, and Equity. We can think of no better mascot for Hahn Design Studio.
