MEDIA REVIEWS
"Oh, the joy of simple graphic representations. When they involve an effortless play on words, quirky typography and a dollop of humor, they are pure pleasure." --Design Week
"Visually represented, quirkily implied or revealed in a realignment of their letters, some of the names are spelled out and others are tantalizingly obscure but all are treated with humor and fun." --Communication Arts
