I just quit my job...

Post by kaos » 29 Aug 2003 04:04

I told my boss like 5 minutes ago (but I have to give a months notice, so'll I have to work here till end of september). I'm starting a company with 3 friends of my. We'll focus initially on design, mostly web design, but hopefully also print and other types of media. We want to do all kinds of media, from print to TV etc.

Its a bit of a risk, since I have a rather cosy job now, but what the hell, I'm still young, got nothing to loose!

The up-side from this is that I wont have to work 2 jobs anymore, and since I'll be working from home, I'll have lots more time to shred, as opposed to only weekends. School in the mornings, shred in the evenings, work inbetween...cant wait

Sorry for this self-absorbed post.

PS: if you guys want to check out an example of our work, go to:
http://www.preworx.com Its in flash, but the backend is still under construction, since their current host does not have PHP support.
We are also working on a flash site for a local band, it will be up sometime this weekend, I'll keep you guys posted.
