Really nice, Dan. Love that you see the ampersand first and then the D/F is the happy surprise.

no, no ... I have nothing to do with all this ... it was yesterday evening when I saw this beauty in your showcase ... I wrote what I wrote ... and one minute after that ... this beautiful piece entered the gallery ... I swear ... but when I tried to give Lady G a call nothing happened ... anyway ... thanks for sharing ... ;D

this really is brilliant, dan. i think you should start using this as your avatar and self brANDing.

Dan. Nov. 23 '12

Cheers Col - Maybe you're right... I was having difficulty finding meaning in the ampersand. I like your idea but I think I've seen a BR&ING logo before. Any suggestions or feedback on my current avatar?

Reply
ColinTierney Nov. 23 '12

oh yeah, there is definitely a BR&ING logo, i was just having a little fun with the word, totally unrelated to your monogram. i like your current avatar, but it just doesn't do it for me like this one. i don't think you need too much meaning behind this for your personal monogram. i mean a 'd & f' are simply the first letters that make up your first and last name. it also helps that ampersands are pretty prominent in the design community.

Dan. Nov. 24 '12

Haha, i did appreciate the brANDing pun! Thanks for the advice Col. You have a good point, and I think this is a more memorable idea. I'm going for a walk along the beach now, and I'm going to have a long hard think....

Colin Tierney made a suggestion last year, and after some thought over the weekend I've decided to change my personal branding to this monogram! ^^ All of my avatars are changed. No looking back now!
