First thing in the morning, before the tea has kicked in, I wake up slow by checking out DWB’s stats using Site Meter. I have other stats programs in place (Awstats and Statcounter) but Site Meter works better for the quick cruise.
And I don’t have to think when using it. It just is.
Creative Designs has been appearing, well, I wouldn’t say a lot. Just enough for me to be able to enjoy it on occasion. Enough so that I thought it’d already been featured.
Checking back in my memory, I have a niggling that I’d already planned on how to present his banner. And I may have put it to use. Dunno. I’ve searched. But Searches are not always exact. Not first thing in the morning anyway. As half asleep as I am with the over-work shags, it may have already been so.
But no matter if it’s a first or an again, I bring you Creative Designs and David’s Logo of the month, Sinkit. Sinkit was designed by Peter at smashLAB. Nice. Needing no introduction, SmashLAB starts out their selling spiel with “you aren’t going to like us”. Ok. I can relate.
David’s comments on Sinkit:
I enjoy the anticipation of the ball (dot on the) waiting to drop into the hole (negative spaced). All great logos should work in black only, without the need for colour. This is a point that’s missed on so many logos I see nowadays.
I do agree. When I first saw that logo, I had a wow moment.
Working in black first. Another agreement from this end. Without colour to get in the way, potential problems with the design are right THERE, not masked.
Jason Santa Maria uses the same concept with his Grey Box for putting together a web site design. So simply logical. So “why didn’t I make that leap?”
Another post on Creative Design to check out is The fragile magic of paper . I now have title envy. Nice.

So, there it is. My first (admitted) half asleep posting. With the project I’m swamped under, there may be more of these. Or not. Or a combo of too brief or too brain dead. It might be interesting. Or not.
Shagged out posting R Us.
