The History of the Sandbox Threads Logo


Sandbox Threads is not yet officially a year old, but the planning was well underway by this time last year. The hardest part of was finding the "right" name. We came up with many, many good names only to find out that the web address was already taken.

For several weeks, Sandbox Threads was RetroBug.net. We liked the name, but it really didn't have much to do with kid clothes, and we were never really sold on the name, and we didn't like the .net. For about a day, we decided that Retro Bambino was an option, but it was quickly discarded because it was too gender specific.

Finally, one night while my wife was sleeping Sandbox Threads hit me pretty much out of nowhere. I was so excited that I woke my wife up to tell her (this never works). She didn't remember the next morning, but when I told her, she loved it, and Sandbox Threads was born.

Above is the visual history of the progression the logo of Sandbox Threads has made. I miss our first logo (and by far longest lasting logo), but I also really like our new logo and color scheme. We hope you agree.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention - I’ve reviewed it myself now. A very enjoyable read.
