At work, I know which way north lies. My house is not at right angles to compass directions, so it's not as straightforward. My solution was to add a sticker to a horizontal surface that pointed north. I had an idea for the design that was a cardinal face mixed with a compass rose. A faster solution would have been to buy a compass sticker or a compass, but I wanted to try designing. Instead of the usual graphic design programs, I used QCAD.

I was happy with my design, even if it looks like an angry school mascot. One benefit of making my logo is that I don't have to worry about copyright infringements, so I can freely print stickers. If someone else joins the Cardinal team and makes something better, I'll step it down.

I found a handful of sticker printing places online, so I found one that had reasonable prices on rolls and single-pages. My design may not be final, so my first order was a proof-set. I'm still proud of the design, so I added a sticker to my car and a window cling.
