Jstn, thanks for the compliments! Yes, that's right, I was lobbying for CPM-20CV (or CTS204p or M390). I would love it if the model was successful enough to warrant an Exclusive or Sprint run, but I do feel extremely fortunate that it is in production in the first place
The mark has kind of a silly backstory. I wanted to arrange the letters of my last name in a square, with the L making up the left and bottom borders and the A and I nested inside in a stylized brushstroke-y way reminiscent of Chinese characters (I'm an ABC). Later, my wife asked why I wrote "rengong" in my mark...I'm illiterate in Chinese so I had no idea I had even written anything. After I found out what it meant (http://dictionary.pinpinchinese.com/def ... 人工-rengong
), I had a good laugh and decided to keep it that way because I liked the definition, specifically the "manual work" part of it, which I thought was appropriate.
