Blogged here only for posterity.
Back in September, Sarah asked me to help her with a graphic to use as a Facebook cover image to help promote her Deep House / Deep Techno event series in Toronto, “Some Like It Deep”. So I suggested we take this brushed aluminum stereo volume knob image that she had found, with a printed scale from “MIN” to “MAX” – but we should change “MAX” to “DEEP”. She liked the idea, so after a few minutes of photoshopping I provided her with this:
A “Deep” Meme Is Born!
Sarah loved it and used it as her cover photo. I rather liked how the seamless extrusion turned out on the sides, and its dimensions were tailored to perfectly fit the 851×315 cover photo spec. A few hours (and presumably a few shares) later, it appeared on Eric Prydz’s page as his cover image as well!
Now the pic is all over the place, on Facebook pages, tumblr and peppered through Google Images searches.
Enjoy the image, and feel free to use it where you like. I’m proud of it. i only feel bad that the original “MIN MAX” image is uncredited, but I have no idea where it got ripped from. Information wants to be deep.
