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