As I mentioned in an earlier post, Youz*d Design is going through some changes. Not only am I restructuring the business, but I'm also making changes to the website and giving Youz*d a new name.
After a LOT of deliberation in which I drove both Jerome and my mother absolutely crazy, I've finally come up with a new name for Youz*d.
Youz*d is now Apartment 528!!
As much as I've loved the name Youz*d, and as clever as I feel for coming up with it, it's getting a little old trying to explain how to pronounce the name. In an effort to not go crazy, I've decided it's easier to just change the name. We came up with several clever names, but I really wanted somethign that would pay homage to my inspiration for design.
That inspiration is my amazing mother! 5.28 happens to be her birthday. Mom started building barbie doll houses and designing clothes when she was a kid. Now she's a designer with her own baby line due this summer. She's taught me everything I know and has always been there to encourage me and listen as I talk about paint colors for an hour. I honestly couldn't ask for better.
Needless to say, I'm SUPER excited about the direction of Apartment 528. There are lots of different parts in the works right now and lots of things to work on, but this fall will be the big launch. I CAN'T WAIT!!
Stay tuned for more news. I'll be unveiling the new website and logo design next month, as well as slowly leaking the details of what's to come.
