What’s with “Bright Coconut”?
I didn’t want to just name my company something generic or meaningless like “ABC Web Design” or “Flibberidoo Design” — I wanted the name to evoke a certain feeling. In much the same way as “Starbucks” is a name that “evokes the romance of the high seas and the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders,” I wanted my company to evoke two specific feelings:
- Intelligent, smart, and lively — which describes my favorite types of clients, and
- Relaxed, calm, and easy-going — which describes the ideal state of my brain on a good day. 😉
And, I absolutely love coconut — in addition to being an amazingly heathy food that tastes delicious, it also invokes wonderful memories of a childhood trip to Hawai’i — the tropical vibe jumped into my brain and Bright Coconut was born.
I’m Adam Kayce, and I’m the man inside Bright Coconut. Born in San Diego, I wandered around the country for a good fifteen years trying to find my spot. I now live in Austin, Texas, with my two daughters (who are growing up way too fast), and have no plans to move anytime soon.
My favorite tools are my Mac and single-origin organic coffee from Third Coast Coffee right here in Austin, which I make bulletproof-style.
I’m a fan of minimalism, both in design and in my approach to life. I like to cook, eat (mostly) paleo, read fiction (fantasy novels are my “mental escape pod”), and gave up wondering where my hair went a long time ago.
