Dig the Good's mission is to be a garden for ideas (concepts, designs and/or art) to grow from seed (conception / imagination) to harvest (in terms of creative satisfaction, fun, hope, change, business, reach, impact or goodness). We want to create and promote ideas that bring smiles and joy or at least that make you think. We advocate for these ideas and encourage you to do the same. We want to Dig the Good ones whether they are perennials or annuals. We want to nourish them and keep them thriving. We aim to align with ideas that promote hope and/or fun. We hope you enjoy.
Hello, my name is Tomás (my bio). I am a creative explorador or just a strange artistic guy who comes up with stuff. I came up with Dig the Good because I have many ideas both conceptual and visual. I always have. Some tug at me and I want to play with them. I’m a goofy guy who likes to help and grow things. I love to garden. I love nature, animals, the earth, geography and creativity. I am a born curator. I have designed websites and web services for over 20 years. So I envisioned this company as a way for me to address all of this. I also have many drawings from the 1990s when I was showng my work at art fairs in Chicago as as over a 100 amazing drawings from my father, Thomas, (his bio) who passed in 2019.
One of Dig the Good's core concepts is using domains names (or website name like digthegood.com) as the seed for an idea. I call this Domain as Design (or DaD for short). Each domain name gets its own website to grow into but are all tied together under the Dig the Good banner. Any of these concepts may sprout into something more than a simple domain name. With luck and care, they may put down roots and grow into an empowering message, a small business concept, a creative success or an imaginary playful brand either way I want to play with them.
This is a huge project connecting about 120 websites (currently). Add the shop and some social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and it gets even bigger. Then mix in the fact that everyone of these ideas can have multiple versions from simple "Word" editions to geographic versions and those incorporating our art and you have a MASSIVE creative project on hand. I am so excited to finally be able to build and share this with you. I really hope you enjoy at least some small part of it.
Another note about versions: For launch in the Fall of 2021 there will be just four versions for most of the Domain as Design ideas. These will be called "Domain as Design Launch1" and "Domain as Design Launch2." Both will have a lighter font on darker background and a darker font on a lighter background. Each idea will have just the domain's words and website.
After that, well that is when the fun will really start to happen as we start playing with concepts and designs for whatever idea we want to. Think of all these ideas as just the beginning of a large garden. The seeds are planted.
Our ideas fall into these themes and collections (some may be in more than one collection)
There is also an alphabetical list of our DaD ideas.
