Why The Name Ravenous Raven Design?
I get asked this all the time. I have a deep love for poetry and one of my favorite poems (which I have memorized) is The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Ravenous, well, just cause it sounds cool together. Am I right? Okay, how bout because I have a ravenous hunger for knowledge and competition 🙂
From a marketing standpoint, it’s also good because people remember unique names more than they do the generic ones.
