Be Good Not Bad by Brian Warren

5 March 2009

Welcome Derek.

We’ve been busy this year so far. Not just a little bit busy, but crazy-go-nuts busy. It’s been fun and we’ve had some great opportunities to work on some fun projects. There is also a half-finished redesign for this site sitting there, taunting yours truly, begging me to find some free time to work on it. “Soon enough, little guy,” I say.

Busy is good. We like busy. But at some point I realized that something needed to give if I was going to stay moderately this side of sane, as well as get to spend time working on the business and other internal and side projects.

Enter Derek Balmer. It’s no secret we like collaborating with other freelancers. For as long as Be Good Not Bad has been around, we’ve been doing just that. With Derek we hit a sweet spot. We work great together and his skills blend nicely.

So we made it official and the big news for us is that we’ve brought on Mr. Balmer to work with us on a part-time basis. Derek recently left his day job to go indie, so we have no illusions about luring him into anything full-time. In the meantime, though, we are thrilled to have him on board. Derek has some amazing visual design prowess, and the front-end coding chops to back it up. We just wrapped up a project that turned out downright awesome thanks to Derek.

I’m sure 2009 has more surprises up its sleeve and we’re looking forward to it.
