20 years back. I just got reminded by a friend, I had already missed it.
Does make me wonder, who remembers that milestone… And that first logo. Where I painted a “calligraphy”-like computer with a digital airplane, reflecting my conviction that aviation goes digital. Learning Logo-Design rules: Color. Font. Scalability. Too often confronted with logos failing on one of those at least. i.e. dark background? Browser-bar icon (favicon)?

And So Many People I Owe
There was so much more, friends I met, friends moving to other realms. Friends, mentors staying friends. Almuth. Colleen. Regina. Hans. Jerry. Richard. Ted. Anne-Marie. Jutta. Christoph. Werner. Bego. Petra. Christianna. Heinz. Mike. Andreas. Karin. Nicole. Grant. Sean. Another Heinz. Another Mike. Ben. Joergen. Olli. Jens. Susanne. Judith. Uwe. Urs. Etienne. Ndrec. Octavian. So many (and so many others) having such a lasting impact on my live. So many added constantly. So many people I owe. And some other’s I could help. Sarah or Stephanie jumping to mind.
So many others I lost track. So many gone already. But none forgotten. So many social networks helped me to keep track or recover after many years.
Food for Thought…
just food for thought.
