Why does the FSP's logo have a porcupine?
When we started thinking about a logo for the FSP, the first suggestions centered around the Gadsden flag and the "Don't Tread on Me" snake. We decided we wanted something a little more original and PR-friendly, to emphasize the freshness of our approach, while still indicating the same idea. Porcupines are certainly cute and non-aggressive, but you don't want to mess with them! Mary Lou Seymour first suggested using a porcupine in the FSP forum, and Joe Littlejohn was the designer of the original logo, which won over various other designs in a vote of visitors to the FSP website. Since then, the porcupine has gone through various iterations and designs. Check back for more history and pictures soon.
