Design Poll Time!

The quick flash of a thunderstorm today did wonders to my soul. As did the two skeins of rainbow yarn, circular needles, and double pointed needles I got today while out in town. I also got a few art supplies and some used books. So now I’m busy knitting some rainbow colored fingerless hobo gloves and matching hat and then off to bigger projects I think. Like socks. Or a sweater. Who knows.

But all that aside, I have a quick poll for you all. I’m in the process of moving all my themes and my portfolio to their own website for many reasons, but I need help with the name. Coyote Designs has always been the first choice, but Coyote Designs.com is taken, so here are my other options:

coyote-designs.com
coyotedesigns.net
coyotedesigns.org

Or should I do something completely different? Yotedesigns.com? DesignsbyCoyote.com? SnailbirdDesigns.com? Comment and tell me what you think and why you chose it. I’d really appreciate any feedback I can get.

Now back to watching the Westminster Dog Show and knitting. We were supposed to head out for Austin, TX tomorrow but the trip has been put on hold since things have just been so busy here and we haven’t had a lot of time to prepare for it. I was hoping we’d be there to celebrate Valentine’s Day in one of our favorite places, but it looks like that too will be postponed (as will our trip to see Mac). Who knows what will happen though. Just have to wait and see.

So go on, answer the poll!

    I prefer the .net and .com ones. But if coyotedesigns.com is already taken, it might be problematic to buy a domain that’s close: there’s a good chance that you could lose customers who type in the wrong address, especially since they do web apps. I dunno how important branding is to you at this stage, but it’s something to think about…

    snailbirddesigns.com would be nice because it combines a recognizable web presence with the ‘design’ element — that’s what I would go with.

    Also, when and if you have time, I may want to talk to you about doing some joint contract work on a site — I just pitched the idea of a wordpress-based site for the firm I work for, so that they wouldn’t have to keep someone on contract for every little update that they need, and I have almost no experience with creating a good template on wordpress, so I’d want to enlist your expertise to help me put together a solid design. Let me know if that sounds like something you could do.

    (But I have no guarantees that they’ll buy the idea.)

  3. personally, i would stick with snailbirddesigns.com – it’ll help create your web presence! besides, it sounds funky & cool. but that’s just me!! 🙂

    I like the coyote part and I imagine you do too.
    so did you check a different spelling of designs like dezines ?
    Also what about a different word like design such as create

    Hmm…I kind of liked snailbirddesigns.com too… From my perspective, I think it is more eye catching and unique. It must be unique if it isn’t taken yet. And imagine the cool logo you could make with a name like snailbird!
