Australia Day 2007 January 26, 2007

Filed under: General — darwindating @ 10:06 am

Being January 26 today, it was Australia Day. However, today was special for another reason — Google was planning to take a whole photo of Sydney to use on the Australian Google Maps.

We wanted to be a part of the day, and so we created a large banner for Darwin Dating which we hoped would be visible from the sky. One of the co-founders, and his reluctant but good-humored wife, dressed in their wedding outfit with a large sign that said, ‘We met on DarwinDating.com. P.s. We’re hot..’

The day was a huge sucesss. We had heaps of fun creating the sign, and a journalist from the Sydney Morning Herald even came down to interview us — we ended up on the front page!

The Finished Sign

We also created a giant eye-ball to promote another website of ours, Swift City. This project involved some 2,500 pieces of A4 paper, as well as 2,500 wooden cooking skewers:

To get this ready in time for the 9am picture, we had to get up at 4am, and work in the dark with rain coming down around us. However, the result was definitely worth it.

We can’t wait for the pictures to come out in 6 weeks time.When they do, you should be able to find us approximately at the following Lat/Lng: -33.89757219, 151.2255942.
