Hishgraphics: The Name

Why Hishgraphics?

It’s a given that my name is Hisham and I do some (if not an unholy amount of) art in the last few years. Why not “Hisham Graphics”? Or “HishArt”? Or as was labeled on my old extinct e-mail marketing flyer, “Khairul Hisham Illustrations”? (Or my perennial favourite Exploding Toilets Sdn Bhd… don’t ask.)

I chose “Hish” specifically because I’ve grown fond of what the guys over at the Holonet and SWAG usually call me, over instant messaging. (I have no idea how it will sound if someone verbally calls me that; no one has ever done so.) Graphics, because… because…. honestly I have no clue why I chose “graphics”.

I’ve used “Hishgraphics” on two occasions in the past: the GeoCities site where my general artwork is on display, and this free hosting site at orgfree where you’re reading this article, and I’ve grown used to it that I think future projects on the web will also be under the Hishgraphics name.

What projects, you ask? Gimme a couple of months to plan and implement it, then if all goes well you’ll find out what here at this blog.

In the meantime, here are some ideas for a Hishgraphics logo I’m throwing around. If you have opinions, I’d be pleased to hear of it.

  1. Ok then, I will start calling you Hish from now on. How does that sound? Hehehe. Btw, regarding my choice of logos, all seem fine to me, if only I could see them in colour. Sorry, everything displayed in my home PC Monitor is in green, blue and yellow. Need to get rid of this soon. Perhaps buy an LCD monitor as a replacement instead. Back to the logos, judging from the design, I would choose 3, 2, 1 (in descending order). Adios!!
