The Utah Teapot
So, if you know me and Adam, it’ll be pretty explanatory as to where the name “Whitepot” came from. Finally, some benefit to having Potts as a surname.
Adam Whiteside + Vicky Potts = WhitePot.
But what about the logo? No, I can assure you, it’s not a cheap cop-out using the first Google Images result for “white pot”.
Those with experience in 3D computer modelling (more so Adam than myself) will be familiar with the Utah Teapot (right).
It’s the “Hello World” of computer graphics – I promise I wrote that before realising the Wikipedia article said the same thing.
The only problem is it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing thing in the world – it’s short, stout, and kinda funky looking. So we’ve opted to model our logo off the original teapot the modern Utah teapot was based on.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the day we get a Whitepot Studios-branded white teapot.
