nueve mil kilómetros changes to Apartment 406 Designs
It has been a little quieter around here, because we have been working on a new brand name. We are really excited about this and want to share the news with you; nueve mil kilómetros changes to Apartment 406 Designs.
We still love our old name nueve mil kilómetros because of the story behind it and because it was our starting point. But we are also excited for the new name Apartment 406 Designs which has just as much a sentimental meaning for us as the name nueve mil kilómetros.
The story behind nueve mil kilómetros
nueve mil kilómetros translates to nine thousand kilometers, which is the distance between our two home countries. “Us” that is my wonderful partner in life who comes from Colombia and me. I come from Germany (if you would like to a little bit more about us, hop on to our about page). And between those two countries are approximately nine thousand kilometers of distance. That will always matter to us because it will always be true and no matter in which of the two countries we are, we will always miss someone or something from the other side.
The story behind Apartment 406 Designs
The name Apartment 406 Designs also has a sentimental meaning for us. Even though here it is not about a distance but a place. “Apartment 406” is the place where we started this dream and where we created all the first designs and ideas. It is also the first place where we created a home together. So “Apartment 406 Designs” has and will always have that wonderful meaning for us.
A new name, a new logo and a new page
We did not only work on a new name and a new logo, but also on a new look for the website. Even though you will still find most of the old articles of nuevemilkiloemtros.com on apartment406designs.com, you won’t find all of them. We will sort out several articles and structure the new site a little differently. Hand lettering and hand writing has become a huge part of our creative work, so the site will have more on that topic.
This also means, that nuevemilkiloemtros.com will be “under construction” and not available for some time, while we work on all the changes. We apologize for any glitches that might occur during the process and are looking forward to seeing you on apartment406desings.com!
In the featured picture you can see how we developed the design of the new logo and part of the many versions we made before deciding for one. So here you can already see the new and finished logo of Apartment 406 Designs and the old one from nueve mil kilómetros.
