  1. Nice, very clever.

  2. The simplest thing I’ve ever seen, yet the most clever.

  3. Simple yet clever!

    Define problem.
    Solve problem.

    It’s such a simple approach. Bob gill was brilliant at redefining the brief. It always contained the answer.

    And yet there seems to be an emphasis, especially in marketing, on making things complicated.

  5. Great logo! Simple yet sophisticated! :) My father’s wife just told me about your site over Skype. I will be certainly looking deeper into it, and I’ll post my thoughts on things I like or dislike.

    ps- I added you on facebook
