Our logo is used to create instant public recognition for our brand. A stylized hand stamped onto a blue circle, with two fingers raised together, it shows a Gryp being worn. But what does it mean? If you're curious, read on to find out how our unique Gryp Logo became what it is today.
Our logo is based on the Hamsa.
Hamsa: Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many times throughout history, the hamsa is believed by some, predominantly Jews, Christians and Muslims, to provide defense against the evil eye. -Wikipedia
The word "Hamsa" comes from the Arabic word Khamsah, meaning "five", but also "the five fingers of the hand". To us, it is a clear symbol of positivity and unity. With its similarity to the peace sign, the gentle serenity and protection conveyed by this symbol are directly in line with our mission. The Gryp offers peace of mind from the chaotic urban jungles we navigate.
|Why the color blue? The color blue, like any other color, has a supposed psychological effect on the human brain. Blue conveys a sense of cleanliness, peace, water, tranquility, and reliability. It also provides a sense of security and is believed to stimulate productivity. It is the most common color used by brands offering trust in their products.|
Blue is also the color of divinity. Religions often disagree, but they can usually agree on one thing; the color blue is a holy color. The Hindu dieties were depicted as having blue skin, Jewish people tie blue tzitzit to their garments to represent God's Glory and Christians associate blue with the Virgin Mary. The color blue joined together with the Hamsa represents the divine, binding us together. Working together, we can make the world a cleaner place. After all, cleanliness is next to godliness.
