I've been converting to a strict repo naming convention where everything is cc-name, where `cc` is a unique 2-letter abbreviation per client/initiative, and `name` is a lowercase single word.

Eg: redirection engine for a client called Weave is wv-redirector, my own portfolio jacobford.com is jf-web.

But stuck on what I should do for standalone open source projects. Break from convention and stop with the prefixes, or become known/annoying for always starting my repos with ---?

@maria After 34 sleepless minutes staring at that little black bug next to the UPC (Penguin!) I believe can finally confirm: 11 Pelican Shakespeare volumes, except that they are all Midsummer Night’s Dream.

I recently picked up an old copy of ‘Pentagram: The Work of Five Designers’ where I learned Armin Hofmann collaborated with Pentagram on a custom alphabet for Rank Xerox in 1969, for use on their packaging.

The design seems to take some cues from the Velos alphabet Walter Käch showed in his ‘Schriften/Lettering/Écritures’ book (https://fontsinuse.com/typefaces/209806/segel-club-velos).

The talk by @neauoire in Handmade Seattle is really interesting conceptually, even to someone like me who doesn't code or anything. Like permaculture for computing.

Also the Q&As at the end.
