The Warbird

Many People have asked me about our 307 Warbird design. What is it, Why is it? Well, imagery is an important thing when you design something you want to carry meaning. To me one of the greatest subjects is the wildlife of this Great Nation and the Great State of Wyoming. For example, our Buffalo logo is something that all wyomingites know as more than just a native creature, but as a symbol of the state, as represented on our state flag.

Why an eagle you ask? Our National bird the Bald Eagle is a symbol of Power, Freedom, Intelligence, keen eye site and Superior hunting ability. If you have never seen one, you should make a point before you die to do just that. They are truly impressive birds. Massive in size and power, but so graceful. To my good fortune last week, I got the privilege to watch a full grown Bald Eagle feeding on a deer carcass just thirty or so feet from the road. Definitely a benefit to living in Wyoming.

 Pretty F*%&ing cool if I don't say so myself.

Anyway, back to my point. The Eagle in general is used in symbolism everywhere. Our money is covered in eagles. Its used in military symbolism by us, our allies, and even or enemies. Used literally all across the world in numerous coat of arms, crests, sculpture, and sacred to American Indians.

The sure fact is that just the thought of an eagle, with vast protective wings, powerful beak and talons that defeat any enemy, and deep foreseeing eyes, is an empowering visual. Please ponder this... How is it that such a massive bird can leap to flight so effortlessly, soaring above all other birds, with no limitations to its glory. That is the eagles great meaning. This is what I hope for all of us. This is why I use this image. Whether it be our Nation and its interests, our State and its beauty and opportunities, a company like 307 that seeks to represent them to the highest level, or your own possibilities in life, the eagle stands for these limitless glories with all of its characteristics.
