Why "Takooba"?

The company is named after a sword - most often spelled "takoba" or "tabouba" carried by the nomadic Tuareg of sub-Saharan Africa.

 

They are the last tribe on Earth to carry a sword in daily life. I chose this to be the symbol of my company not for warlike reasons, but because of my sharper content. 

 

The logo, designed by the talented Sarah Dixon at Spider Creative, is inspired by the metalwork on one of these fine sword's scabbards.
