The Year of the Kottke
~ 17 May 2005 ~
First off, if your reaction is the same as that of several colleagues at SXSW upon hearing the news, you may be surprised to know that up until recently I was a full-time employee for a medical software company here in Utah. For some reason — even though my About page (now changed) specifically stated I was employed — people still thought I was already on my own.
Well, as of several weeks ago, I’m now a full-time freelance designer. With a fourth son fresh out of the cooker, some might call the timing “insane.” I prefer the term “opportune.”
Expect a few changes around here in the coming months as I continue to set up shop, refine the focus of my design and writing, and perhaps share a few other surprises along the way. As for projects, my calendar for May and June is quite full already, with July and August filling up quickly. So if you or your company has a project that may require my services, please contact me soon to secure a slot. I’d love to discuss.
Now if the weather would just cooperate, a 9am tee time on a sunny Wednesday morning sounds rather attractive…
