This Monday marks my last week as a designer at Lulu.com. I’ve been there about 3.5 years — including the time I spent doing work-study as part of my master’s degree — and I’ve had a fantastic time. I’ve had the chance to work on virtually every corner of the site at one time or another, and I’ve worked on a few pieces more times than I can count. I’ve been lucky to work with a pretty great group of designers and developers, and I’ve learned an amazing amount in working with them. It’s been a really hard decision to leave — I think Lulu has a pretty bright future — but I’m pretty excited about what’s next.
In July, I’ll be joining Viget Labs as a User Experience Designer at “Viget South” in downtown Durham. But before that happens, I’ll be taking two weeks off to recharge my brain, including a trip out to California to see my brother before he moves to Australia.
