Keep in mind the biases that come along with these

Media - So you had a rediculously overpaid position in
1998 and now you flip burgers.
Communications - Another English major enters the work
Information Design - Huh?

This is how some - not all - will see these terms.

Stick with something innocuous that won't pigeon hole
you. Like Fortinbras Corporation or Fortinbras &
Associates. Or just name your company after a cat.
