where the name came from


Mistakes made eventually become the learning curves to move forward again. Allowing your foundation to be set, you have a solid place to return to as you move, find, and engage the freedom in every pocket of life. Connection is what we long for and what we are beautifully and wonderfully made to seek out. How one finds connection is endless, but what impacts a life is that unique change of perspective, intentional risk and having the self-control to let go of control. The grass is the same color on the other side, and we have to find a way to seek contentment in our own yard. We can all become homeless without community, and we all need a starting point, a name, to be known, to share our story and to simply give.

Ever wonder where homeless people got that black marker? Simply a name. What their sign said with that black marker? Simply a need. What they hope to get starting with a black marker? Change.

Inspired by the homeless, welcome to Black Marker Design.
