How did you come up with the name?


Great question! The inspiration comes from a quote from Lester Bangs in the movie Almost Famous by Cameron Crowe. “I’d stay up all night, just writin’ and writin’. I mean, like 25 pages of dribble. You know, about The Faces and Coltrane. You know, just to write. Alright”


Here at Dribble Publishing Company we love music, writing, and movies so this quote helps to combine all three. I mean how cool would it have been to be a rock and roll journalist for Rolling Stone Magazine back in the day. More importantly, I think that quote gets at the passion behind doing what you love and sometimes you just do it because you love to do it whether that’s writing, reading, listening.

Why is the logo a roadrunner?


The desert is a truly magical and awe inspiring place and this little bird thrives in that harsh environment. The first roadrunner I saw was at a campground on Lake Powell in Arizona/Utah. I couldn’t believe it as it scurried around the campground from one site to the next. So fast that I couldn’t get a picture. It was smaller than I thought, had quick feet that barely touched the ground, and was endlessly curious about all of the happenings around. So when I went to think of a business logo, which is an exceedingly difficult task as many of you know, I thought of the roadrunner. In completing my due diligence, I found some amazing facts about the roadrunner not only as an animal but as a symbol and knew that it was the perfect fit.


As an animal roadrunners are great communicators with up to 16 different calls. They leave footprints shaped like an X and can run up to 20 miles per hour! They are very skilled hunters sometimes nicknamed the “snake killer” for their ability to kill rattlesnakes and have a unique ability to kill the tarantula hawk wasp. Lastly, they thrive in the extreme desert environment braving harsh winds, heat, and little to on water. For more cool facts on this species, check out allaboutbirds.org.


As a symbol the roadrunner can serve as a reminder to take action on one’s ideas and to believe that you have the knowledge, wisdom, and know how to see things through. This can be especially true when you trust your intuition and instincts. To learn more about the symbolism of a roadrunner, check out whatismyspiritanimal.com.


Dribble Publishing Company uses the roadrunner to convey the message of innovation, creative thinking, and great storytelling to our readers, listeners, and writers. Like the small but mighty roadrunner, Dribble Publishing Company hopes to convey more than 16 different voices over the coming years and to thrive in the sometimes harsh, and competitive publishing environment. It also helps to serve as a reminder for our community to pursue their dreams, trust their instincts, and see things through.
