FYI - This isn't a logo for a company or anything. This is something I'd like to hang in my home, so please look at it from the perspective of unique art.

I came across a poem called "Live your dash" where the meaning really spoke to me. It's less so that I cared for the poem and more so the actual phrase "Live your dash". To summarize, the "dash" is representative of the dash on your tombstone that sits between the year you're born and the year you die, and the phrase "live your dash" means get the most out of life.

I really like the fact that a simple phrase can say so much and how a mundane dash can represent so much. I've looked to see if there is artwork that symbolizes this phrase but haven't been able to find any, so now I'm seeking help to come up with a creative painting/photo/design that embodies that slogan. The finished product can either have the actual phrase woven into it somehow or not... but I'm looking for a creative way to showcase it so that I can eventually get the design framed.

For inspiration, here are a few things I really like about the phrase.
- While a dash is so simple and represents the span of everyone's life, every person's life is unique and is never simple.
- A dash is a straight line, but people's live's are filled with ups and downs...highs and lows. Almost more like a heart rate monitor.
- A dash is a line, and by definition, a line has an infinite amount of points. I think of the points on the dash being all the moments one experiences is life.

This is a very important project to me and I want to make sure the final product is something I love. I'm willing to wait for the right concept that speaks to me but I'm not a creative person and need help finding that design. I'm first looking for thoughts/ideas on the best way to capture this phrase and it's meaning.

Below is a link to the poem, but keep in mind that I'm less interested in the poem and more interested in the simple, yet complex, meaning of the phrase "Live your dash"

    Dear contest holder, I would like to make an illustration for you contest, but I noticed that you rated some logos with 3 stars. After all are you looking for some simple icons/ logos?

    You have made me fall in my imagination. I have this belief that there is a difference between the man who is alive and the existing person and I think this is very close to the idea of the sentence that you are talking about in this poem. You live to create your own self and create a lasting impact for you after you die, so you must practice life as an extended journey in which you experience and create your own achievements.ِAm an artist and I have my own theory in life, I can draw you something about this, but I need to talk to you if you can send me a message so we can discuss this deep sentence together. Thank you
