My client wanted a flip clock for a wedding site to countdown to the wedding day, but I wanted to do something a little different than the usual style that you see.

Like it v much
amazing colors and style. numbers are "pompadour"??
Oykun: They sure are.
That's super nice, man!
Love the font, nice!
That fine grit on those numbers: dang! Subtle but great.
Thanks, Tom. Didn't know if it was noticeable enough!
Great work, Dave. Textures are just right on this.
I want this on my wall.
Pat: Come to think of it, that would be pretty neat.
Very unique Dave... nice work
It's just noticeable enough, I think.
Why can't I hit the Like button more than once?
Joel: If I figure out a way, you will be the first to know ;)
I could spend my valuable, billable time slobbering over how great this clock is but I'd prefer to take the next 10 minutes analyzing the meaning behind the number 24 that you decided to go to market with...
If I were a beginner in Psych 101, the rookie answers would be something along the lines of girlfriend's birthday, date of first lost tooth or the last two digits of your bank PIN number (and ultimately most of your Internet passwords); but alas, Mr F6, I am not. I realize the shrewdness you possess and would never resort to such novice tactics.
A step further down the line would have me think that maybe you subconsciously chose those numbers due to childhood a fascination with the great Willie Mays or the Black Mamba himself, Kobe; but I know you too well. While other less astute Dribbbler's might have even guessed a Barry Bonds or Ricky Henderson, I am well aware that your passion in life is one for those who only turn left. If you were to go down the road of comp-ing your designs based on famous athletes, you my friend would have most likely chosen Jeff Gordon, the Rainbow Warrior.
Yet still, I believe there's more to the story. There's too much history here to be ignored. I ultimately believe the choice of the number 24 is in the fact that it isn't a conjoined number at all; you have distinctly chosen to use the number 2 and the number 4 but they, in fact, were not used in the form of the integer between 23 and 25.
People of Dribbble, I present to you the following case:
At the tender age of 11, little Davey once took a trip in the back of his family's station wagon to the great natural wonder we all know as Niagara Falls. What was proposed as a fun family vacation, sadly turned to one of Dave's darkest secrets in life. As the youngest of 3, it was often hard for Dave to be noticed but it never crossed his mind that he might be forgotten all together.
On that fateful day, it is true that as Dave's family loaded the car and set forth towards the Poconos, little Dave himself stood in amazement of the falls. An hour of driving passed before the family realized the grave mistake that they made and thus returned to retrieve there lost possession. In total, Dave sat and cried a falls of his own for no more than 2 hours.
In a feeble attempt to make up for their lack of attention to their bright little son, they decided that Dave himself would be allowed 4 cones full of ice cream thinking that it would smooth things over and everyone could move past the situation quickly. At 11, ice cream helps, but it could never freeze out the events of that day completely in young Davey's mind.
In your attempt to game the Dribbble community once again, I see through your pain. I know how significant the numbers 2 and 4 are in your life. Let it out Dave, it’s okay to cry.
PS. Also, nice shot.
That comment, Mr. Ross, needs to be cemented in the annals of Dribbble's history.
Christian: I am at a loss for words. Clearly you are not.
The two signifies the amount of hours you used to concoct this fantastic drivel, and the four represents the amount of times I had to read it to quell my disbelief.
Oh, on a side note, I have never met my real parents and I am lactose intolerant. Thank you for reopening those emotional wounds.
Trumped. Well played.
If trumping is defined as yearning for my birth parents and soft serve while softly sobbing in the dark listening Enya, then yes, I trumped.
Lovely work here, man. Dribbble is clearly home to great artists... and comedians :D
gorgeous. loving the font.
