Farm Care Exploration 
Creating any identity is a recognition to an organizations brand values, but most importantly the perception of the brand toward their customers.

The above mark was a exploration exercise. Creating visual connections between the words 'Farm', and  'Care'. The mark represents two simplified elements; farmed fields with the addition of an idyllic sunrise. These elements together create an abstract cross representing, care.
