An Anonymous poster asked this question today over on the Calling All Forum Members post:
Why doesn't Alan Wall mention his work at Steorn on his web-pages ? ... On his website you can se a lot of logos that he has designed for different companies, but there is no mention of the Steorn-logo. Why?I personally think that's a bit of a stretch. I can imagine plenty of reasons why Alan may not highlight Steorn on his websites. To find out why exactly Alan doesn't bring up Steorn much, I simply emailed him. Here is his response:
To me it seems that Alan Wall is not proud of what he is doing at Steorn. He doesnt want to get his name connected to Steorn. I guess he know what is going on and is afraid of loosing his design bussiness when Steorn is proved to be a hoax or fraud.
There are two reasons I don't highlight Steorn on my blog:Thanks Alan for the reply! That definitely clears things up.
Firstly I don't want it to be a mouthpiece for or representative of the company. We have our official channels and I don't want to cloud our communications.
Secondly, for personal reasons: I have found that when some people find out your work for Steorn they tend to ask a lot of questions that either I can't legally answer or I have answered hundreds of times. As exciting as it is to work for Steorn, it's more convenient that people don't know about it. That goes for everyone from taxi drivers to people at parties to people who might read my blog!
I am a full-time designer for Steorn, and Waltzer is my sideline business, which was set up before I joined Steorn. I am considering deleting the site altogether because Waltzer is no longer a viable business for me since most of my time is taken up with Steorn work. (I'll keep my blog though!)
I just keep the blog for my friends, not to push my career or business.
Hope this clears up any confusion.
