Some of you know this already, but a lot of you don't. In June of this year I left The Design Conspiracy.
Before you ask; there was no big drama and no big falling out. I announced at the start of the year that I'd like to leave. It was time for a change. New challenges.
It's been odd not being there. I have lots of brilliant memories and stories to tell.
Along with four others I started that company in 2001 (a few months before 9/11). Anyone who has ever started a company knows how it consumes every part of your life. Starting a company is very exciting (thrilling really) challenging and fun. The learning curve is massive. The designing bit is easy, but have you ever tried reading a balance sheet? Or filling in a VAT form? Negotiating fees with the CEO of Big Scary Company PLC? That's where the real fun starts.
I've been up to a few things over the summer, it's not been all holidays, and I've met with loads of interesting people.
Obviously there will be a New Thing. But I'll tell you all about that another time..
