808

I am pleased to announce that after months of deliberations, we finally came up with a great name and logo for our soap: 808! Not only did we like the sound and look of "808" (it's symmetrical and we have a really cool font), but we liked the idea of having a number - something that doesn't have other associations with it.

It doesn't seem like finding a name would be a hard thing but we really struggled with it. I don't think either of us knew what a long process it would be. Many thanks to our good friend and awesome graphic designer M. who put much of her time, creativity, and love into it. :) Oh, and in case you were wondering the significance of "808," it is the address of my soap partner and dear friend E. - that house is where all the magic happens!

  1. yup, s'cool. i like that you're using a lowercase 'o' in place of a zero. i do that a lot, too. especially with the georgia font. what font did you go with?

  2. actually...that isn't exactly how it looks, that's just how the font on blogger is. the one we chose is, well, thicker. and the zero has a strike through the middle. i'll see if i can get a pdf of it and put it on here since it is hard to describe.

    glad you like it though!
