No it's not done yet. I'm finishing up the last touches, and dialing in the content and assets. You might want to expect another shot tonight though, you heard it.
(Now imagine me talking like Sir Jonathan Ive, white background, British accent and all)
One of the biggest goals of this redesign was to have a unique experience on your mobile devices. To create a mobile friendly portfolio site, I had to forget about web, and rethink how I laid out every single section, how you interact with the pages to take advantage of your powerful mobile devices.
So today, I'm happy to announce my website will be not only viewable but enjoyable on iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, Android, Kindle and Blackberry devices.
And last but not least, I want to talk about this icon in a separate paragraph. I know it looks like campaign monitor logo sideways, and pretty sure it looks like 2 million other logos that used the letter "K" creatively. @Brian Plemons originally started to play with this idea on February 27, 2012 as far as I can date it. I loved it back then, I still do, but I wanted to make couple changes, then @Brent Jackson rolled out his lovely Papercraft font at the end of 2012. I used the letter "K" from this font, untouched, unedited, and I liked it and kept it.

You're gunna change the ball game, Suer
Wow! Stunned! Can't wait to see what your uploading again tonight!!!
Nice, having a "K" name too, I really like the idea. A simple yet stylish way to incorporate "K" into a logo.
All in for "K" names.
You really are an inspiration, Kerem.

I thought this might be most clearly stated in graphic form. Have you considered this alternate? Just simplifies that shadow to a single vector shape. I attached the psd. It does lose the cool effect of that wrapping top left corner on the glyph though...
I want to be extra clear that I am not trying to one-up your shot, just had this 3 color version thought about papercraft (http://jxnblk.com/papercraft/) a while back and thought it might be pertinent.

Looks great and I'm certainly not an icon designer, but it looks like Campaign Monitor's logo rotated 90°.
I love the approach, @Kerem Suer and the lengths you've gone to adopt multiple devices. Great work!
I am curious to hear how you handle @Ted Goas' comment. It's always sort of a kick in the nuts when you get that sort of feedback. However, the way you handle it is what sets you apart from everyone else.
(@Ted Goas I'm not picking on you by the way. Just eager to see the response. )
@Matthew Sanders @Ted Goas I thought I've handled those questions in my first comment, no?
@Kerem Suer @Matthew Sanders I don't know that my comment needs a response. I know Kerem's work is original (I read the explanation) and am not suggesting anything be changed. I just spend a lot of time on Campaign Monitor and made a connection.
Nice. I think the 'K' shape will look a bit small on an iPhone home screen. Also, I don't think Jonathan Ive has ever said the word 'Android' or 'Blackberry' in his life ;)

Looks great though.
As someone who's struggled to create attractive "K" letter marks in the past, I love it. Clean marks composed of simple geometric shapes tend to withstand the test of time.
Regardless of whether or not it resembles prior art, it's a great mark that well represents you and your work.
I'm so excited to see your new site : ) I hope it has an updated dog picture ; )
Looking forward to your new site mate. What would the black and white version of a logo like that look like? Seems like it relies on shading to differentiate the top and bottom of the "K"

@Krenskiy Dmitriy i love that paper art work and Kerem's work 100's time best then this shot http://drbl.in/flTY
Nice to see my new logo here :)
Still I think there´s a difference between a "K" and a "M" and the cuz of the similaritiy in style was explained by @Kerem Suer . So come on guys, don´t search for the fly in the ointment.
I see a trend starting.
K's are in right now!
