The only thing I’d like to ask is whether “Blood Donation” is the final name for the project or whether you’d be open to name suggestions? Asking as that would be a quite generic name to specify a project which is quite specific in what it does.

(Sriram Sureshkumar) #5

I am open to change the name. I had already procured the domain blooddonation.app but it shouldn’t be a problem. I wanted to get started quickly with bare minimum functionality and hence found it would be generic. But frankly, I think it would be better if we name it contextually.

@kamal, thanks for pitching in, and yes you are welcome to contribute :slight_smile: Right now its hosted here, https://blooddonation.app

@sriram this using material design standard? @elioqoshi did you already start working on the ux design?

(Sriram Sureshkumar) #8

@kamal, yes we want to use material design standards. Specifically Angular material. https://material.angular.io

(Elio Qoshi) #9

No, not taking on UX here.

(Sriram Sureshkumar) #10

Is there any update or does anyone need any info from my side? Just checking since it’s silent here. Please let me know if you need anything.

Hi @sriram,
Any idea for a new name for the organization or are we keeping it “Blood Donation”?

(Sriram Sureshkumar) #12

Hi @ergish, at the moment I do not have any names, but open for suggestions. If it’s going to make it better.

(Ergi Shkëlzeni) #13

I was thinking of some random name alternatives:

1 “AOBAB” - like A, 0, B and AB types of blood
2 “Pulse”
3 “Red+”
4 “1Up”

“Blood Donation” can always stay as a tagline. Let me know what you think or if you have any other idea about the name so I can start designing some logo options for your project. :slight_smile:

I think these names are a good start! I’d think about refining them a bit more to be a bit more specific.

Some suggestions from me:

Abzero
Pulse Help

However I’d prefer ‘Rufus’ which means red in Latin, but in more of a healthy skin color red like ruddy. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ruddy

What do you think @sriram @ergish ?

(Ergi Shkëlzeni) #15

Great! For me the names are perfectly ok. I prefer Abzero and Rufus.

(Anxhelo Lushka) #16

I think people might confuse it if we go for “Rufus”, since there’s a popular software called like that.
https://rufus.ie/
I like Abzero though.

(Elio Qoshi) #17

I don’t think that’s any problem at all. That project does bootable USB images. This one does something completely different. But if in doubt, Rufus+ could work.

(Sriram Sureshkumar) #18

While I like the idea behind Rufus, I also feel people would confuse between the app Rufus and this. But if we do not get anything else then I would go for Rufus+.

How do you think the below sound,
metahuman.red
bubble.red

(Elio Qoshi) #19

How do you think the below sound,
metahuman.red
bubble.red

I’d suggest avoiding using domain names into a brand :slight_smile:

Rufus+ sounds like a good option to me.

(Ergi Shkëlzeni) #20

In my opinion “metahuman” would be a bit confusing as a name, it gets you in a different direction and on the other side “bubble” is catchy and playful, but maybe it sound more playful than it should.
I would go for Rufus+.
