NEW SITE



As most of you probably know from reading my post on o-review.com, Oakley bought my domain name oakleyicon.com. A very nice lady from O contacted me and basically said that Oakley needs to protect the integrity of their name. She said I was permitted to keep the things I created on the web since it's in good taste. The buyout wasn't huge at all. I know I could have gotten $$$ if I really wanted to be an ass, but I really want to design for the company some day and I didn't want to be "red flagged."

She said she was going to forward my info to the graphic design department at Oakley. Shortly after talking to her, I got an email from someone at HQ saying the design team will be contacting me soon. So now I wait.

I decided to create an new site via blogger.com. It's been a pain in the ass trying to recode the site to get it to look the way I want. I think it looks better then the old one. What do you guys think?

  • It is almost as hot as you are -- and I say that sincerely. I hope they are smart enough to offer you big bucks and "a de-luxe apartment in the sky" and whatever else your dreaming. Your kewl and you deserve it.
