The compass points in four directions; North, South, East and West, harkening back to sailors and ships traversing the stormy seas on their way home from a long journey. The compass holds meaning for a traveler, being a symbol for guidance, the ability to point you in the right direction. I find interesting is the Latin root behind the word itself. Compass is derived from “corn,” meaning “together,” and “passus,” meaning “way” or “route.” The Chinese Feng Shui, North correlates to adaption, creativity and infinite possibilities. To us, North reminds us to always look up and symbolizes trajectory and goals. Fitting for the adventurer, no?
Orange comes from our love for the “City of Oranges”, Redlands. Everyone has a place or time that has influenced their journey. Redlands has been both the time and place for most of us at North and Orange. A place where we built our careers, we met our significant others, a place we bought our first home, times that have changed us and moved us forward.
