We Made It, Mark.

Cuban Council Did

Backend Concept Design Frontend IA Identity

Back when nobody gave a toss about thefacebook.com, we were visited by one Mr. Zuckerberg at our SF offices. Quizzically, he asked us "Tell me... guys, what is 'design'?" In response, we pulled out this awesome kick-ass logo from our backpacks, flicked it casually across the table and said ... "Mark. Dude. Does this answer your question?"

Joe Kral of Test Pilot Collective helped us out in creating this rock solid identity, which Peter Markatos later helped refine and extend to business cards and letterhead.

Did You Know:
The Twitter logo was in fact ALSO conceived in the Cuban Council offices, though not by us, but by Linda Leow, back then associated with Future Farmers.
