The winner of our contest (and a $150 TGK credit!!) is Gregory Scott. We loved his thoughtful and creative entry. Here’s what Gregory had to say:
I think you should name this design: Linden. I think this is the perfect name because many of your designs are given a personâ€™s name; Linden can be used as a boyâ€™s name or girlâ€™s name. And in nature, linden is a tall, attractive-looking deciduous tree. There is also a beautiful poem by Wilhelm MÃ¼ller, The Linden Tree:
At wellside, past the ramparts, there stands a linden tree. While sleeping in its shadow, sweet dreams it sent to me.
And in its bark I chiseled my messages of love: My pleasures and my sorrows were welcomed from above.
Today I had to pass it, well in the depth of night â€“ and still, in all the darkness, my eyes closed to its sight.
Its branches bent and rustled, as if they called to me: Come here, come here, companion, your haven I shall be!
The icy winds were blowing, straight in my face they ground. The hat tore off my forehead. I did not turn around.
Away I walked for hours whence stands the linden tree, and still I hear it whispâ€™ring: Youâ€™ll find your peace with me!
We are continually inspired by our amazing customers and fans! Thank you, Gregory, for coining such an apt name for our new design!
