While I was cleaning up yesterday, I ran across the original drawings Darwin Yamamoto had made back in the early-development days when we were brainstorming site logos. I had brought over a bottle of wine, and Darwin, Thomas, and I spent a fun evening doodling and chatting about various ways to visually express BillMonk. As a graphic designer with a passion for video games and character design, Darwin was able to throw out a dizzying number of great ideas. A monk asking for money? A chubby monk, a monk head? What about hands of giving-and-taking? Could we imbue the words “BillMonk” with monk-ness? How about showing the end of the need to post IOU notes on the fridge door? Wouldn’t it be neat if a monk popped genie-like from your cell phone? I thought these drawings were pretty cool, so I scanned in a couple of the pages. Many thanks again to Darwin and Thomas!
