How jtupper started their other graphic design journey

Summary

I'm looking for a very simple classic logo that would look good on a metal business card.... So black and white logo is ideal.... colors are not important.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Malcolm Gladwell used it in his book The Tipping Point
(Little Brown, 2000) to describe those who are intense gatherers of
information and impressions, and so are often the first to pick up on
new or nascent trends. The popularity of the work of Safire and
Gladwell has made the word widely used in their particular contexts.
Gladwell also suggests that mavens may act most effectively when in
collaboration with connectors
- i.e., those people who have wide network of casual acquaintances by
whom they are trusted, often a network that crosses many social
boundaries and groups. Connectors can thus easily and widely distribute
the advice or insights of a maven.

In The Tipping Point, Gladwell described a "maven trap" as a
method of obtaining information from mavens. In the book he gave the
example of the toll-free telephone number on the back of a bar of Ivory soap,
which one could call with questions or comments about the product.
Gladwell's opinion is that only those who are passionate or
knowledgeable about soap would bother to call and that this is a method
by which the company could inexpensively glean valuable information
about their market.
