DESIGN NOTES

Butterfly References

Butterflies often represent a natural growth and transformation, starting life as a caterpillar then developing into a vibrant, colorful insect with the power and freedom to fly. This shows us that we always have the ability to change and evolve into something greater.

Semi-Colons

A semi-colon through the lens of mental health is a symbol of solidarity between those of us who live and struggle with a mental illness or who have lost someone to suicide. The semi-colon is used by many to demonstrate their winning battle against all odds. It is a perfect and constant reminder that their story isn’t over!

Shoulder Patch Semi-Colon Sol Invictus

It stands for the zenith sun that wipes away all darkness and serves as a beacon of hope that the future is certain, even if difficult times arrive.
