I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

You should follow me on Twitter here.

You haven’t heard a peep from me in awhile, but I’ve got some major news to share.

After 4.5 awesome years at Dubberly Design Office, I’ve decided to leave my job. In two weeks, I’m headed down to a little internet start-up called Google. I’ll be working on the visual and interaction design of a little application called Gmail. Whoa.

It was a terribly difficult decision to make. I’ve been quite happy at DDO. I didn’t like the idea of commuting to Mountain View. I also wasn’t sure about Google’s relationship with design. In the end, the folks at Google really impressed me and I decided to join.

I’m thrilled. I’m excited. And, I’m a little nervous—going from a 12-person company to a 26,316-person company will take getting used to. Let’s hope I can make an impact!

If you’re curious, here’s the portfolio that helped me land the job: http://chanpory.com

If you want to follow what’s going on with me, circle me on Google+!

I’ll also try to find time post on here again. Perhaps, on the Google shuttle bus. ;-)

Cheers for now!

    Congratulations Chanpory! Happy to hear the news. I can definitely relate to this, and I can only imagine how hard it must have been to deliberate. Good luck on your new ventures with Google, and looking forward for any new posts on LifeClever. Cheers.

    Can you not provide details as to how you created your portfolio. I want to create a portfolio to showcase my photograpghic images and hopefully to get freelance work. A tutorial, per say not photoshop but how you started with idea and made it into a fully fledged website. Now that would be cool Chanpory?
