Tomorrow is my last day at Onehub, and next week I’ll start my new role as Creative Director at Tagboard. Whew. I cannot believe I just wrote that.
I’ve had a marvelous time at Onehub, and I’ve learned a ton working with some of the smartest people on the internet here. In addition to the creative work, Onehub’s penchant for health & fitness by sending the entire team to Crossfit 3+ times a week has been nothing short of life-changing for me.
I’m tremendously excited about this new position. The feelings of anticipation, excitement, and, yes, I’ll admit it, a bit of nervousness, are all palpable. The folks at Tagboard are doing awesome work, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.
It’s uncanny how important personal relationships are in the work we do. The better part of a decade ago, I bought Sean Sperte a cup of coffee at SXSW; and we’ve been friends ever since. It wasn’t until this fall at XOXO that I again bought him some coffee and he brought up Tagboard.
I also happened to meet some of my Happy Cog and Onehub friends at conferences, and those friendships happened long before we ever talked about working together.
This is one thing that both inspires and energizes me about the work we do. The people behind the pixels, the relationships we build, the coffee we drink… It all makes this work feel more permanent and meaningful.
2014 is going to be one exciting year, I can’t wait to see what it brings.
