Warning Signs

Clearly I never came back to address/edit the filler post from yesterday...what a shame. I get the feeling that's going to happen more often. Not that anyone reading this could care less but it does upset me.


Deciding on a company logo for 2 Player Productions has proven to be a pain in the ass. We've been toying around with a number of ideas over the last few months but can't seem to settle. Below is an example of the kind of thing we've been tossing around and tweaking.

And, regardless of what the design is, criticisms like "phallic" "suggestive of homosexuality" or "won't look good on a business card" always find a way in there. Unfortunately, no combination of the readily available symbols (!@#$%^&*) can sufficiently convey my hair pulling frustration so I'll just leave it at this sentence and move on.

According to this morning's round of emails, it seems as though we're leaning towards going back to the simple, original two player arcade button. Apparently, the test audiences who have mistaken it for a restroom sign can "[get fucked] in the ear." Amen. Levering's got a good idea for an animated logo. More on that when we finish.


I actually had a dream about this last night. There was a phonecall. Pack your bags, we've got tickets to fly to New Mexico on November 1st. Most people don't remember a majority of their dreams. Unfortunately, the pure elation I felt upon hearing that news remains vivid and firmly entrenched within the folds of my frontal lobe. This disappointment will haunt me for the rest of the day.
