Company name «Miraculix»

How did the company name «Miraculix ltd.» originate? During the preparation of my company I noticed that the key values of my professional work are embodied very aptly by the character of the druid Miraculix in the Asterix comics stories. Even if or precisely because Miraculix doesn't really fit into the serious business world, I decided on this name. And it still suits me today.

Attributes of the character«Miraculix»

  • Freedom
    Self-determined, outside the tribal hierarchy and yet highly respected by all
  • Integrity
    Anyone who lives consistently according to ethical principles can be trusted blindly.
  • Wisdom
    Constant and attentive observation, questioning and creation creates inner wealth.
  • Leverage
    You can even win wars with a small bottle of potion.

Attributes of the «Comics» medium

  • Graphics
    Images say more than words and penetrate deeper into the human brain.
  • Metaphors
    Archetypal models, analogies and symbols evoke strong associations.
  • Story telling
    Stories are more easily and sustainably absorbed than facts.
  • Humor
    Those who can laugh about their own shortcomings stand well in life.

Wikipedia.org: «Miraculix is a person of respect who still stands above the chief in respect, but to whom he is strictly loyal. Intellectually, he is superior to Majestix and the only male villager who does not usually engage in combat.»
