    The Cricket Fiddle Logo


     The "Cricket Fiddle Instrument Company" is not...in reality...a huge factory where dozens of skilled artisans are cranking out hundreds of musical instruments a day. It's just me.                           The Logo here was inspired from the Grimm’s Fairy Tale: The Ant and the Grasshopper. Ants are incurable workaholics while Grasshoppers are generally perceived as lazy drunks. I have chosen the Cricket to symbolize a happy medium between the two. Crickets eat their Powder Milk Biscuits and get up and do what needs to be done…but still have time at the end of the day to kick back, enjoy life and chirp out a few tunes.
