How was your festive time? Did you rest, drink, sleep and eat? I do hope so, you worked so hard you deserved a treat.
Due to an odd selection of gifts from team curlykale I’m writing this blog posting dressed as a giraffe drinking a glass of cockspur rum (it’s been a stressy few days back)
This is one of those long rambling posts, so you may want to give up now if you’re after design / web design / font news.
You decided to continue, I shake your hand for your bravery.
It’s been an interesting year at curlytowers ™ I thought I’d sum everything up in headings for fans of proper structure.
Vicky & Matt
This year both Matt & Vicky came onboard full time, due to a recent desk rearrangement both are forced to sit within my zone of interference (ZOI), yet manage to continue their work unharmed. Curlykale Design (also known as CKD to the trendier followers of the kale) started out many a moon back as me in my back bedroom, working like a maniac for those brave enough to employ me. I answered business calls whilst in the sea naked sat in an arm chair (unfortunately matt was there to witness this) I worked late into the night, drove around the country, and generally worked like a very large bean to get CKD going. We are now going. CKD has grown into something FAR larger than me, I cant imagine it without the wonderful Matt & Vicky..left to my own devices we’d be in a very different place.
We’ve moved around quite a bit. This year we took the next step and moved down the road from the wonderful Remedy Centre which we simply adored being part of (give them a ring if you need fixing – they can fix most human problems) The most wonderful team at Glasgows had a bit of office space going upstairs and invited us in. We’ve now been installed for 2 months and are simply adoring being so close to them (they smell lovely) We’ve been making full use of both hot and cold running water…fans of early curlykale will be pleased to know that 100% of our chairs are now industry standard safe (many thanks to those who didn’t sue us from falling off our old chairs). Next week our new sign is to be installed – we are officially office trendy.
You guys are ace. We are so lucky, we seem to attract the most wonderful, interesting, beautiful, lovely clients. 2012 Saw a massive influx of more beautiful people into the curlykale tent, people starting new businesses, big businesses who are sick of the old ways looking for a more stress-free approach and those lovely people in the middle. It’s simply a joy to welcome you at the door, you’ve already read the blog, you know I dont wear shoes, you already know we have a cat on twitter, you are part of our family before you even come in.
So what’s the plan for 2013?
We are growing. More and more people are coming onboard the good ship kale, I’m determined to keep the Curlykale spirit alive. The plan is to continue onwards, I’m determined we’ll never wear suits, I’m determined to keep answering the kitchen line no matter what time of day, I’m not going to wear shoes and our cat will continue to be a cat. If you want to be part of a something that will look after you, guide you and inspire you…bob by right now for a mediocre coffee!
