Seasons Greetings!

Hi there! I'm Dan and I'm a new addition to the community staff. I'm used to the cold winters of my hometown London, in the UK this time of year. However, I'm currently residing in lovely tropical Bolivia and everyday is a party, especially these last few weeks. Tonight, of course is the biggest party of all!

I feel the need to really take time to appreciate everyone around me, after not being crushed by some huge intergalactic alien 10 days ago. I'm grateful to share my joy of the new coming year (and the non-destruction of the earth!) with you all.

Here at Recompiled Networks we're working hard to improve our services and to provide quality to all of our customers all year round. While we sit around the fireplace, sharing good moments with our families and friends -- we can't help but think of all our customers. So as this year ends, and a fresh one begins, we hope success and prosperity comes to you, and your loved ones.

Thanks for being with us, have a happy new year!

Branding Change & DigitalPoint Logo Contest

New Branding

As time goes by, things change. NullShells has been around for 6 years and it's time for us to change our name. When we started in 2005 we offered free shells only. Now, in 2012 we offer shells, web hosting, mail, dns, vps, and vpn. We wanted a new name that better reflects our newer services. Recompiled Networks is that new brand name for which we were looking. We feel it better reflects our company, our service offerings; and we've had 3 years to think hard about it.

Logo Re-design Contest

We had a logo which our designer made 3 years ago. However, we wanted something fresh so we reached out to the DigitalPoint community to help us with our logo design. We came back with an amazing experience from working with very creative logo designers.

We had a difficult choice to make in choosing the winner of our re-design contest. We consulted with customers, an art consultant, and used a scoring system to rank entries under consideration. Our scoring was based in three areas originality and creativity, cohesion with our web page as well as the logo itself, and overall simplicity. The results are below:

1st Place

Entry #25 / debayanmitra / debayan.mitra2009 [at]

2nd Place

Entry #26 / Animman / andymotanel [at]

3rd Place (2-way tie):

Entry #27 / McCoyH / contact [at]

Entry #28 / logoesdesign

There was so much great work done by the DigitalPoint community. You can find the thread from the contest here:
