Claim to fame…

I designed the original eBay logo 23 years ago. I was a junior graphic designer and it was my first logo. Heartbreaking that they have recently redesigned it in a generic version. Originally, eBay wanted a fun, involving mark that would convey a feeling of community. I also thought it should capture the random nature of eBay’s endless array of products. I was inspired by the colors in the old Apple logo and by the game Twister. Then I let the colors overlap and blend, lending a feeling of playful interaction. 

Favorite movie…

Lord of the Rings, I am a total nerd and love the world that Tolkien created. Needless to say… I love the books too. 

Favorite food…

I LOVE potatoes. Darn it. Wish they were the best food ever for you, but they aren’t.
