What we think:
Last Friday I walked down to my lawyer’s office, sat down in a wood-panelled boardroom, and quickly signed a few papers. I checked my phone when I was done: it took all of seven minutes for me to resign from nForm.

Every time you go to a dinner party or a networking event, one of the first things people ask you is, “What do you do for a living?” It’s how we get to know someone and get them comfortable enough to start talking about themselves. But what if you have one of those jobs that’s hard to explain in one canned statement?
Proudest moment: The work we’ve done with crown prosecutors (service design and interface design) this year has been really fun because they’re articulate, engaged and passionate about what they do. Overall though, what I’m most proud of is having a great team that’s capable of tackling ambitious research and design projects. I guess that’s the kind of thing the boss should say, but it’s also true.
