The design is still on paper and in my head, but since my workshop is over 300 miles away at our country home and we’re not going back until Memorial Weekend, all I can do right now is to keep on designing. My entry is a retro Atomic Age/Mid-Century inspired design and I’d been struggling with coming up with a name for it.
I finally stumbled on a few that I started liking, and my wife agreed. Then she came up with another one that I absolutely loved as well (despite not being born in that decade, the ’50s culture really appeals to her). So we decided to combine the two names to hearken back to the age of “New Technology,” “The Future,” and “Convenient Suburban Idyllic Lifestyles” the ads loved to promote.
