Cumberland Forge also produces and sells other items forged in its traditional furnace. Cumberland Forge emphasizes traditional blacksmith techniques and traditions.
Residential markets in the outdoor living space. The ideal customer prefers higher quality products built to last a lifetime. He loves the outdoors but wants a more elegant outdoor living experience. He also likes the traditional things in life that only iron and wood can deliver (before the days of plastic injection molding).
Something simple that captures the essence of a traditional mountain black smith shop. Imagine a back-country blacksmith, working with hot iron and hammer.
Something that looks best in 2 colors (black/white) and could be etched or stenciled into the iron steel products we produce. Not too intricate or ornate.
A logo that scales well so as to fit on a small banner ad, letter head, or a large steel fire pit.
Above all, be creative.
