    Creative Advice

    I'm about to start doing web design, and I've had a thread going at Flashdaddee concerning what to call my company when it turns into that (in the mean time, I just need to decide before I register a domain name!). So tell me what you think of the name, "Mackrory Web Design". Creative, huh? If you don't really like, I'd love to hear some other suggestions.

    I like it for two reasons. One it sounds professional, and secondly I assume by your sig it's your real last name, so naturally you like it. How could you go wrong?

    > Mackrory Web House
    Too pop-culture

    > Mackrory Web Factory
    Sounds too low-level and gruntish.

    > Mackrory Web Center
    Too arrogant.

    > Mackrory Design House
    Same as the first one.

    Don't give me this, "Oh, but Raven, or ID, or 'whatever" sound cool, and they do good."

    Microsoft isn't very flashy, and they're right up their with pixar and george lucas.

    My website, "Vortex Of Tech" is a good description of the site - a mushy blend of technology information and tips. However, it sucks. It sounds like a hacker created it. "Bits and pieces" would be a far better name for my website, IMO.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    Flashy, cool names are evidence of someone trying to dress up the goods. What could be more boring then International Business Machines, but it works.

    IBM works cause its a nice abbrieviation which can easily remembered. Why dont you do the same? Make the official name something like Mackory Design Studios but make its common name MDS. Catchy, huh?
    Please direct all complaints regarding this post to the nearest brick wall Have a nice day.

    Lots of businesses thrive on the ACTUAL name of the business starters name-like stated above. That sounds good to me!
    Such is life.

    Wow - I guess I'm going with SmackyDesign. I'm going to go start a poll on SmackyDesigns as soon as I check the availability of a good url. Could one of the mods close this thread, please?

    Sean, don't use SmackyDesign. It's a bad choice, IMO. But it's not my company either...

    >Like I said at FD

    MackDesign<

    Like I said at FD, I agree. I still say Mackrory Designs (or Mackrory Web Design(s)) is the best choice...

    I got your message about how you changed your mind, but what exactly does IMO mean, anyway?
