Pizzabuns is a stupid name for a designer. But not when there’s a million people named Chris Bean. A quarter of them designers. So, I use Pizzabuns as a handle online so I can be found.
But what does Pizzabuns mean? Well, for starters, It’s the most kick-butt motorbike gang that the world has never seen. Our motto was “Raise Heck. Eat Pizza. Kick buns.” We never had motorbikes, but we had a dream.
That’s where the joke eventually went to. But it all started with calling the “<3” emoji a pizza slice with hamburger buns on top. So, it quickly went from “Pizza Hamburger buns you,” to “Pizzabuns you,” to “Let’s start a motorbike gang.”
Then we forgot. But I wrote down “Pizzabuns Motorbike Gang,” at some point. Years later, I would find the notebook while thinking of something to call myself besides Chris Bean. No designer is going to call themselves Pizzabuns. HA!
After buying pizzabuns.net, I realized that I was now competing with the same million Chris Beans, but also recipes for pizza buns.
So there you have it. My name comes from the fact that I’m easily amused and nobody is going to find Chris Bean Designer without extra steps.
