We have been asked recently where our company name came from, so we have uploaded a page on our main rakemark.com website but also thought a quick blog article would give you all a good insight to our brand and company.
Rake Mark is a website design company based in Stafford, Staffordshire and is owned by Philip and Sarah Brassington. The web company started out it’s days about five and a half years ago, trading under the name of ‘Sapientia Media’ (which is Latin for wisdom) but we soon discovered that the name was being used by other companies so we set about finding our very own brand and what was to become one of our USP’s (Unique Selling Points).
We had thrown around dozens of ideas but nothing had really made us think ‘Yes, that’s the one’, until that is, we visited the bottle nose dolphins of Florida. It was whilst on this holiday in early 2006 we were fortunate enough to swim with these creatures and where we found out about the “rake marks” on their skin.
So what exactly is a Rake Mark?
Rake Mark’s are sets of parallel scratches/scores in the skin of a dolphin; these arise when dolphins fight, play and flirt with each other and are common especially in wild adult male dolphins.
These marks are usually shallow enough to fade with time as new layers of skin grow, but show clear evidence that the dolphin’s are meeting and interacting with other dolphins.
As these marks are created by the scraping of teeth on skin they are not uniform in any way and each and every dolphin will carry a different set of marks, making them individual and unique.
