Art Director, 2007-2015
Storybird was my first foray in the startup world. It began as a part time endeavour, and in 2012 picked-up to a full time engagement. During my time with Storybird I learned a lot about working in the distributed team environment, and the nature of the startup beast. In the end, this bird left the nest before the story was over.
I was a one man department within the company. I referred to myself as 'The Art Dept.'. I was responsible for the oversight of pretty much everything that was outward facing to our user base. That included our website, our web app (this was the heart and soul of the product), and eventually two iOS apps. I also designed physical print products for our on-demand offerings. One Christmas I also became a small parcel delivery service, and packaged and shipped over 50 customized Heath mugs and high end hot chocolate.
