Description: This is a design for an upcoming trekking equipment brand. Färjkarlen (se) means ferryman and I made it in the style of ancient nordic rock drawing plus some accessoires and a simple compass as a symbol for travel. Sweden is a very popular location for trekking and hiking and my customer wanted a connection to it. Note: The correct spelling would be Färjkarlen - the added letter 'e' was a choise, my customer made for better international reading. Still looking for a better typo.

Wow! Thanks alot people! I am thinking about altering it. 1. Isn't the compass too much and draggin concentration away from the center? 2. Isn't the space for the ferryman too small/ background too small? 3. Shouldn't I beter use a more modern/classic font to have a contrast to the mark? :D

that is quite a nice mark and interesting. I personally think you should leave the mark alone but maybe work on the type.

Very cool, love the style and the illustration.

Thank you Sean! Unfortunately the customer won't take it as it is.
He sees danger in connection to nazi stuff because of the runes-like typo and nordic theme. It probably will be some simplier version. :/
