Well, I'm still scrambling around like an Australian gopher, trying to get everything organized and running smoothly. In other words, touching up some portfolio stuff, building the almighty web site, trying to get PayPal to not be a pain in my ass, just business stuff. In the meantime, here is the almost world premier of my new company logo, I actually did a pre-premier last night on Myspace. Surprisingly, my girlfriend, Ace, was the only one who noticed, but she thought it was pretty nifty. I truly love the red, black and cream retro color combination, in fact, I think it my favorite. Another favorite element is the font, Starburst Lanes (available from Font Diner, if you're interested). It is technically what you might call a "bowling font" yet I find it very versatile. As for the geometric shapes, well they are all Googie influnced, reminescent of the great signs for motels, drive-ins and coffee shops that you might have seen along Route 66 or the Super 99 Highway, back in the day.
Okay, as you can see I'm still not on a regular posting schedule, but I should be soon, so until then, cheers!
