Hi All, Happy Friday.
I always have a love/hate relationship with design team calls. It's exciting to see new designers come in and play with our products. On the flip side, it stinks to hurt people's feelings. We've done this for 6 years now and it doesn't get any easier - in fact, I think it gets harder because we've made so many friends over the years and some of those friends try out for the team.
For those of you that made the team - a HUGE Congrats! We are thrilled and excited to have you! It's going to be a fun-filled year this year with lots of great new products! We're working on some great stuff right now!
For those of you that don't see your name or didn't receive the e-mail you were waiting for, I'm sorry. I wish I could take all of you. I know many of you spent lots of time on your applications. I know many of you bought product just for the call. I know many of you sat by your computers all day yesterday waiting for that one e-mail. I feel for you... I've tried out for teams too. Please know there's always next year. People's talents evolve all the time. Please don't give up!
Thank you to everyone that applied! Good stuff! We had way more International applicants this year - you can see by the list. This made it hard to choose too because I can only take so many International members.
Enough about all of that.. Here's the big annoucement!
Have a great weekend everyone!
