Our Grandma Bahr had two beautiful middle names, Sophia and Fredaricka. She was a creative crafter and Christa and I have many fond memories making fun things with her. Naming our business after her is a great fit because of the family tie and special meaning, and SophiaFredricka has a beautiful and memorable ring to it (although, there is one downside, it can be challenging to remember exactly how to spell it - we changed the spelling to make it a tiny bit easier).
When we started talking about the logo design, we both knew we wanted the words 'SophiaFredricka' to be prominent. We also knew we wanted something simple yet eye-catching which encompassed our concept of tradition and handmade. Together, we created the idea of an intricate frame around our name like a picture frame around a formal family portrait. We both drew a bunch of little frames in our sketch books. Christa looked over at what I drew, and pointing at one in particular said, "Thats it! It's perfect!" It was a decorative, swirly frame that had a charming hand drawn look. Then Christa wrote out 'SophiaFredricka' in her pretty hand writing.
