After a mere week online, Soma Design now shows up on the front page of a Google search for soma design. We’re doing even better on google.ca, where we currently come up as #2. (We come up as #1 if you restrict the search to canada only.)
While there are numerous other organizations out there with some variation on the moniker “soma design,” we felt that the world was big enough for another one. Also, since somadesign.ca was still available, we decided that there was definitely room in Canada for us. It’s a big country!
As for the name, why did we choose it? It’s short, catchy, easy to remember and hard to spell wrong. It also allows me to indulge my nerdy side, as it’s a greek word that translates to body. Body conjures up associations of organic, unity in diversity, simplicity in complexity and a flair for sensible (yet quirky) design that I hope will pervade all that we do here.
