Full Time Employee #001

It is with great honour and excitement that I’d like to introduce you to “Richard Thomas”:http://www.383media.com. Richard is “The Blog Studio”:http://www.theblogstudio.com employee number 001.

Richard is a very talented designer. His current “site”:http://www.383media.com is nice, but isn’t up to date. His recent work is really top drawer.

I’ve got some pretty exciting projects on the go, and the time seems right to bring someone in house. It’s terrifying and utterly thrilling. Taking responsibility for someone’s livelihood is not something I do lightly. But I am confident in our ability to crank out some amazing work together. Having Richard’s help will ensure that we deliver a top end experience for our clients, from first contact to final delivery and beyond.

Truth is, as much as I love design (and I looooooovvvve design), I also really enjoy business development. Bringing Richard in will allow me to devote more energy to building our brand and expanding our network.

I’m also very excited about the challenge of managing a creative team. I’ve managed large teams in the past. But managing creatives is a different game entirely. It’s a challenge I’m looking forward to.

With luck, you’ll be hearing a bit more from me again. Not right away – there will be some adjustment time for sure. But hopefully within a few weeks I can start adding some value to the conversation again.

Big thanks to “Lisa McMillan”:http://www.lisamcmillan.com for the heads up on Richard! See, this 9rules thing really works.

So if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some Ikea office furniture to put together.
