Everybody who’s ever been to An Event Apart or wanted to write the best possible markup or found themselves seeking great writing about design has probably discovered what an awesome guy Dan Cederholm is.
Working with him at SimpleBits is every bit (ha ha) as awesome as you might imagine. I could write a lot about how much I learned in one short day about starting a business, communicating with clients, deciding what projects to take on, and staying inspired. I could also gush about how in just a few hours I learned something new about typography, and picked up a great CSS tip. I suppose I might also elaborate on how refreshing I found Dan’s sense of humor, humility, and warmth, especially coming from someone as talented and respected as he is. And I suppose I could thank Dan for the great Mexican food (I seriously could eat at Edgewater Cafe every day), and all the T-Shirts, and for hiring me. But I wouldn’t want to make anybody jealous or anything. (Or make him feel uncomfortable, haha).
Since I’m not going to do an entire post relaying how happy I am to be working at SimpleBits, I thought I’d let the following video convey my excitement for me.
