on: Transition

So for the last 8 years I have been a full time something; part time designer. Student, Husband, Father, Intern, Manager, Associate, Agent, Representative. I have now made the scariest decision of my life: full time designer, part time everything else. It's a weird transition and not one without a bit a remorse, trepidation, and reservation. I have an amazing opportunity at to work on new user interface initiatives in their newly minted product design group. We going to be developing products (in this case websites) that are unlike anything before seen in the outdoor retail category. Everything is based on business strategies and customer input; our job is to marry the two in a cohesive, comprehensive solution. We're like the bastard love child bridge between marketing, customers, and design. It's going to be a wild ride.

p.s. If ANYONE! has good ideas on sites they like, functionalities that catch their eye, engaging designs, or sites that flow seemlessly, hit me up at cody [at] calbrechtdesign [dot] com. (Sorry for the goofy link, but it helps keep spammers at bay) Conversely, if you see anything on Backcountry, Dogfunk, SteepandCheap, WhiskeyMilitia, Chainlove, or Tramdock that gets on your nerves, be sure to let me know.

Cheers, and thanks for reading.
