Logo my Ego

Last week we unveiled our new logo at Palmetto GBA. This is a project I've been working on for over a year now, along with a couple of really talented graphics designers on my team, Chris and Ferris. Even though the website I'm responsible for gets hundreds of thousand of visits each month, it's really cool to see something you worked on get unrolled from the roof of your office building with the whole company looking on. Unfortunately, after a year to prepare for the roll-out, this project really only just got started.

Ferris. What a cool name. There is absolutely no way I could work with someone named Ferris with out doing the "Oh Yeah" from the movie. Of course, she probably gets that all the time.

Congrats on the logo.

Y'all sell dusters there Chief?

Todd said...

Your photo looks like a scene from "The Sopranos." You are clearly the boss. Nice work on the logo. I suppose Mr. Ward feels awful for calling us "dummies" for so long.

In response to all these comments:

Chuck, Yes, "Ferris" is a cool name, but she's too young to appreciate that movie like we do. We're old, man.

Kyle, No, we do not sell dusters, but we are the premier manufacturer of Don King wigs.

Todd, Indeed, I AM the boss. Just like in The Sopranos, I'm the older fatter guy, hence my bossness. I had my goon, Chris and Ferris, whack Mr. Ward (high school band director) six months ago.

I'm with Kyle - it's a feather duster, not a Palmetto. You need to go look at some trees.

George said...

I guess we'll have to change our name to "FeatherDuster GBA".

Who is Allen? I don't know any Allen. I know and Alan, but he knows how to spell his name.

Kyle said...

Don't you worry about how Allen spells his name... You NEED to get to worring about that giant feather duster on the front of your building!

Ferdlings said...

yeah, help a brother get the feather duster from off his work place. Who can help? Anyone... anyone... bueller?

Ferdlings said...

Wait, are you sure this isn't just a bomb scare or fire drill and you're taking credit for the sign?

If I were George I would be insulted by the feather duster comments. It serves no purpose belitting a year's labors. However, the "palmetto" does look oddly like that flower thingie Horton the elephant carried around with the Who-Land dust spec riding on it.
