I would like to start a clothing company called Le Pain D Peace. The name is a word play that basically sounds like "gingerbread" in French. The logo is a gingerbread man. There is too much pain in this world and we need more peace. Based on the fairytale

Hello world! My name is Danny, I'm looking to get funding to start a clothing company called Le Pain D' Peace. I'm doing this with my wife Melina. 

The idea of the name came to me on my way to work, not liking what I was doing, feeling stuck in one place with no progression in sight, living from paycheck to paycheck. I had that impression of going nowhere, a feeling emptiness. With a backache in bonus from hurting myself at work. But I have a family to feed and the bills keeps on coming! 

The image that came to my head is the gingerbread man, as the tale goes, with my own interpretation, he did not accept his condition, coming out the oven stay there waiting to be eaten like the other biscuits he was cooked with. So he ran away, ran as fast as he could. Most of us knows the rest of the story, so no need for now to go with all the details.

What hit me was that in French, my first language, gingerbread is called "Pain d'épices" - literally "spicy bread" . Pain means bread, and pain was what I was feeling at that time, both mentally and physically!  For "d'épices" it's pronounced - (d) A pēs - . So the word peace was what came to my mind and peace is exactly what I needed. The slogan that came to my mind was "Life is Pain (D: will get to talk about that letter later on) and Peace!

So that's pretty much all what the inspiration is!

Then I have worked on a logo with a friend with I'm really proud of!

The story continues...
