What's in a name?

The second thing our clients always ask (after "How much will it cost?") is "How did the name Pink Robot come about?". Well, here is that story:

Pink Robot began life as the collective gleam in the eyes of visual provocateur, Lisa Orth and binary astronaut, Kim Beecroft. They had a hunch that combining their talents would give rise to a bright and healthy business. They were not disappointed. In the spring of 1998 they christened their love child Pink Robot. Was it their intention to juxtapose these two words to represent the relationship between the visceral nature of design and the structure which gives it shape? No, they just thought it sounded cool!

Who are the Bigwigs?
