My workblog is called Bar & Line. I wanted to name it for three reasons.

  1. I like the name "Bar & Line" a lot. It's classy, and a little funny. I wanted to lay my claim to it, in case I want to use it for something else in the future*.
  2. Developing visual identities is a lot of fun, and it gave me the opportunity to develop a few logos.
  3. Giving something a name feels like more a commitment to that thing. It's not just me - it has its own life now. That also means I could plausibly invite people to guest-post to it in the future.

* Like a dataviz-themed drinking establishment?
