What’s in a name

Some years ago I used to publish software on Iphone. I published under the name Death By Pixel – DBP. Having ceased doing that some years ago I decided to launch a portfolio site under a different name. Playing around with ideas I saw the typographic potential of dbqp. It’s kind of like a typographic pun.

Typography was one of the first things I truly loved about graphic design. In the days of Apple Mac Quadras, I remember using layout paper to trace out type faces from lettraset books onto my mock ups.

The counter and the bowl of dbqp work nicely together to create a logo that is also a typographic pun. The question is what does it stand for? Well, I guess it could be Death By Quick Pixel. But really, it’s just a visual pun that makes a simple domain name.
