Does it not bother anyone else that she didn't use her trademark lower case 'i' for her name on the Ellipse album? Just feel it was another thing that added to her identity and would've carried on being a nice subtle thing that connected all her work together.

What are your thoughts on this? Maybe she thought that she was 'all grown up' now and it was time to move away from it. A kind of 'fresh start' when it came to her image and her outlook on her music. I definately believe she did it on purpose, maybe she didn't think it was that significant. Either way, i hope it's not gone forever!

Yeah, xD Maybe she...forgot? Hahaha Like I did, until you mentioned it! Now that you mention it, it does kinda look not as Immi-ish without the 'i' on her name. Smile

I definitely noticed it, I like it though. When Immi started using the lowercase i in 1998 for I Megaphone, it wasn't something you saw everywhere. Now we have iPhones, iPads, iTunes, etc. Imogen is always as original, fresh, and creative as possible. I actually like it though, I think it shows growth. It's like Ellipse is saying, "I'm Imogen, and I'm not afraid to be Imogen!"
