I haven’t said much here about what I’ve been up to professionally for, oh, the last two years or so—mainly because I’ve been way too busy starting up to bother much with PR. As of this month my business partner Phillip and I have been running our iOS consulting business, Brooklyn Computer Club, for two years (working with a bunch of cool NYC-based startups on projects such as DrawQuest, Potluck, and Field Lens along the way) so we decided maybe it was time to start putting a bit more of a public face on the business and actually, like, telling more people about what we do.
As part of that effort, we hired the wonderful Ed Nacional to do some identity work for us. The brief we gave him was basically “Brooklyn Homebrew Computer Club” or “Can you give us something that suggests modern Brooklyn but also with a bit of a vintage 1970s Bell Labs vibe?” As you can see above, I think he pretty much nailed it.
We liked what Ed did so much that we decided to do a run of one of his designs as a t-shirt through Cotton Bureau (a Kickstarter-like service for shirts run by our friend Jay Fanelli). Our shirt has already met its goal and will definitely be printed, so if you like it be sure to swing by in the next week and snag one for yourself.
