    My friend and I are consolidating our businesses because it makes more sense for us since we work together on everything.

    Here's a bit about what we do, lazily taken straight from my website:
    Our wide range of services currently includes web design & development, mobile marketing, SEO & website management, template design, script installation, Facebook application development, business cards, flyers, and t-shirts.

    What we want is something short (preferably 2-3 words or even less), creative, simple, but rememberable and fun.

    Nothing too complex with hard-to-spell or made-up words unless they are catchy and easy to spell. I learned that with my current name, which is Artzi Media - most people can't even read the first word, pronounce it, or remember it. My partner's name is Top5 Designs, which just isn't creative.

    Two names my partner likes are:
    • 1minus1 - this is a UK web design company. Check out their site: http://1minus1.com/ It's badass, both the site and their name, and we're going after that style.
    • Skype

    Some names I like are:
    • Light, Ignite
    • Cloudspark
    • 37signals

    (I was thinking about making websites for start-ups at the time, hence ignition-type words...got stuck in that rut, so the names don't have to be about start-ups or anything like that...or ignitions, for that matter, lol.)

    Rules:
    1. No trademark names included - that's a given, I would think, but felt like saying it.
    2. No hyphens. Two words combined into one word is fine, like Cloudspark, but no hyphens.
    3. Numbers are okay. We prefer digits over written numbers, though.
    4. Name MUST be available as a .com domain, with no hyphens or anything else.
    5. The company will likely be an LLC but we don't want "LLC" in the domain name.
    6. We'd actually prefer names that don't include "studio," "designs," "media," "productions," etc. Get creative.
    7. Multiple submissions allowed.

    Winner gets $25 via PayPal. Contest ends on July 10 at 11.59pm CST.

    PM or reply with your name, whichever you prefer!

    I may even give you my domain once we get everything moved over to the new one. It's currently at PR4 and almost 2.5 years old.
    But that's still to be determined. ;)

    Thread bumping is appreciated. :p

    I am not sure if this kind of thread allowed, i think this rule is applied to the lounge too

    No contest or crowdsourcing

    and i think, the lounge is different...

    I think shifting this thread to "Hire a Freelancer" would do!
