Litefoot Technology Logo Meaning


As I was thinking of a name for the company, I knew I did not want it named after me. I had no desire to glorify myself and wanted something that would outlast me. As I thought about this over several months, nothing came to me that would envelop the core of what a company should represent. One day a situation came up that really challenged me, one I knew I could not handle myself. During that day an old poem came to mind that reminded me I was not in this struggle myself:

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:
one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, You said that once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.”
The Lord replied,
“My son, My precious child, I love you and I would
never leave you. During your times of trial and
suffering, when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried You.”

Carolyn Carty – 1963

That is where the footprint came from and it reminded me that our company should be there when a client is having their worse day with technology, when they are at their wits end and need to be carried until we get them back into production with all their data! That we need to be good stewards of our clients trust in us. The second part of the Litefoot logo came to me a few days later and the reason the name is spelled with “Lite”. One of the goals of Litefoot is to come into your business and fix things as quickly as possible. To be honest, it is a struggle most times as we bring a new client onboard. What we have to do is get all the information on the network and most times its not documented. We also take a deep dive into all the problems that are described by our new client. This takes time but when its done correctly, the client sees us less and less until they rarely have to call us. Things just work and our footprint in your company is very lite.

Yes, long winded but there is real meaning in our logo because it embodies our mission statement.
