Fire wheel burning in the airOctober 29, 2007
I have the incredible privilege of joining Josh Williams and the Firewheel Design team. I've known Josh for about 5 years - he's one of the best and brightest of the web world. In fact, he's leading a half-day workshop at the Future of Web Design in New York next month and speaking at Web Directions North this January in Vancouver. A year ago, he was kind enough to contribute to The Blogging Church. Look for his excellent piece in the final chapter, The One Thing.
More importantly, Josh is a first-class individual and he's built a team of the same - top talent who are also top people. I'm truly humbled to be part of this group of artists — illustrators, designers, and developers alike, including Scott Raymond, author of O'Reilly's Ajax on Rails.
Firewheel is the company behind Blinksale, the easiest way to send invoices online, IconBuffet, a social site for buying and trading fantastic icons, and endless high-quality work for some great companies. In our offices in beautiful Southlake Town Square, we're feverishly working on some amazing new stuff. If you want to know what, sign up and you'll find out soon.
I'm so thankful for this opportunity and the amazing things that lie ahead. It's going to be an incredible ride!
Note: Today's post is brought to you by the Grateful Dead and the song Estimated Prophet, which is what plays in my mind every time I think of Firewheel and provided the title.
