Cheers, the more I look at it the more I want to use it. I guess there's always that %22striving for perfection%22 notion we have as designers when we create work for ourselves that is putting a doubt in my mind. However, this logo actually means a lot to me because whilst I am totally in love with graphic design there are also times when I can't stand it. A love/hate relationship so to speak...

yes but whilst I sometimes say %22Down With Design%22 I am at heart still %22Down With Design%22. And then I %22Get Up%22 like Mr. James Brown %3B)

I could do with some help...*Does everyone think I should keep this or go for a different name? I'm finding it hard to get a domain every time I think of something that I like.

I kinda like the angry 19 year old attitude in this. I say keep it. It translates because I think all 'artists' are part angry teen in some way.

Cheers for the input Trish, I guess I'll keep searching for %22the perfect solution%22 for a while longer. If not then as Michael Jackson recently said here in the UK.....this is it.

Meh good domain names are few and far between these days, especially anything with the word design in it. I say keep this.

You're the man. Interestingly enough, I've honestly had a hunch that you would be the next featured designer since probably about late December.

Yikes. (Sean hides in corner and stops posting)

Reply
firebrand Apr. 20 '10

Euan, getting work published one of those first time in the gallery (and on the front cover of CA) kind of feelings - always nice but the novelty eventually wears off and its nice to see others getting a bit of recognition.
