Just wanted to take a few minutes to give a quick update on what I've been doing and what's next. The comment spambots have been quiet lately, so I need to give them some fresh meat...anybody want a good deal on a watch?
After leaving Hawse, I was engaged by Facebook to come out and work on-site in California with the Communication Design team. My 3 month contract ends a week from today. I feel so fortunate to have been able to work in such a unique and amazing environment. As part of the CommD team I've gotten to work on a wide variety of things. I collaborated on some motion projects, helped build the new brand for the AppCenter and did some illustration work as well. I have learned something new from these guys everyday and I am grateful to have been welcomed onto the team.
Right after I get back to Charlotte, I'll be heading out the Weapons of Mass Creation Fest in Cleveland Ohio as a speaker. Can't wait to meet some other designers and creatives that I've long admired and see some amazing speakers. My 30 minute talk will be called "Subject to Change without notice" and I will share about the last few years of my life and how things have changed as a result of pursuing new kinds of work. Come out to the event if you can and say hi.
Once back in Charlotte I'll be devoting myself to client work and pursuing new projects. I have been working on a long term restaurant project that has been one of the best experiences of my design life. JJ's Red Hots will be opening on East Boulevard this summer and it's so fun to be a part of the team bringing this place to life. Keep your eyes open for much more on this one.
Thanks for taking a minute to catch up. Hope to have a new site up this summer, so keep an eye out.
