Happy Birthday Zoë!! May this year be amongst your favorites. And thank you for everything you are doing and going to do here.
So we can track how people use the site, obviously, and some do scroll through a dozen posts or so at a time. One of the most popular posts that people go back to was the Watch Me one – we will be following that up but a reader yesterday commented that the Seiko 5 was his daily watch. Never been a Seiko fan myself but this one looks good:
I am going to show you a watch next week from a designer who is “new to me” but some of you might know. He designs a little bit of everything, from great knit ties to watches to horn bowls. I am gonna have it all written up next week, I just started the interview and found out he lives in an RV in Europe and is currently in Madrid. Anyway, here is yours truly with one of his watches and one of his ties.
Thanks to everyone for the additions to the criteria for the White OCBD Review, a few other companies found out about it and wrote me to see if they could be included, some looked appropriate so I added them. As they come in, quick question. Given that online sales are reflexive and we don’t get the store experience as much, how important has packaging become and should we include it?
And finally, we are working on a new logo, and are interested in feedback. I get what they were going for, but every time I see our logo I think of this:
So I started looking at the Ivy League logos as reference. None of them use that collegiate font, which is fine by me. This is a sketch of what I was thinking, if you have any thoughts or feedback (we are redesigning the site too, so this will go hand in hand, it will be cleaner and better organized with the Market function and other things) I would love to hear that too.
Have a safe weekend.
