The word on the street about the new Kitchen Sink Studios web site

It's been about a week since Kitchen Sink Studios launched its new web site, and we've been humbled by some of the reviews, feedback and even awards we've received in that time. The Kitchen Sink team just wanted to say thank you to those who took a moment to send us comments via social media, e-mail or other methods.

Since its launch a week ago, the new Kitchen Sink site has been viewed by more than 4,000 people — a number that peaked yesterday with almost 2,400 visitors. The feedback we've received has been incredibly positive. Some of the highlights have included:

A wonderful profile of the site and the company by Ballista Magazine.

• Features on the site on such notable industry blogs and publications as Creattica, the MyFonts Showcase and several others.

• A long stream of feedback and compliments on Twitter.

And perhaps one of the neatest compliments came from a gentleman by the name of Hannes von Döhren. He e-mailed us from Berlin to say "Just stumbled upon your site using the Brandon Grotesque. And I have to say the use is just perfect. I love it! Thank you for such a nice website - can't stop looking at it :-)".

The significance? Hannes' company, HVD Fonts, invented the font Brandon Grotesque that we used on the web site. That sort of comment is not something that happens every day!

Anyway, our team just wanted to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who dropped us a line on our new site. We are very proud of it and are overwhelmed and humbled by the response we've received.
