Design, The Digital Ananse Ntontan ™

The Digital Ananse Ntontan ™ is a trademarked logo, designed by myself to be representative of a    j    a    n    i        photography: digital image solutions.

The logo is essentially a modernized version of the Ananse Ntontan.

The Ananse Ntontan is an Adinkra symbol developed by the Akan-speaking people of West Africa. The Ananse Ntontan epitomizes creativity and wisdom to those who are part of or are familiar with those cultures of Ghana, The Ivory Coast, Nigeria and so on that speak the Akan language.

What's more, in Akan-speaking cultures, Ananse is the spider--the weaver of stories and the owner of all stories belonging to "supreme beings". 

The Digital Ananse Ntontan ™ is symbolic of myself as visual artist and of a    j    a    n    i        photography: digital image solutions as a company for a number of reasons.

Even though I am of Haitian-descent,  my ancestors were from the regions wherein the Akan-speaking people of West Africa inhabited before being enslaved and taken to modern day Haiti. Furthermore, as a visual artist, I am intrinsically creative and I'm also interested in Philosophy (-- the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom), in addition to living in the so-called "digital age".

For these reasons, The Digital Ananse Ntontan ™ is the ideal symbol for a    j    a    n    i        photography: digital image solutions.
