But, I would say this isn't the strongest way to start. I like personal work statements and feel like that's the trend (almost like a cover letter) but find them more effective when they are succinct. If you run this sentence through hemingway or read it to yourself it feels a bit unwieldy. What we can do to workshop this is to cut down the last bit of the sentence.

He just went from 0 to fave designer real quick. Cannot believe I didn't seek out who was behind all the UENO and dropbox stuff!
Agreed. If he came out and said "This is shitty, reactionary design with an attempt at being edgy" I'd be okay with that. If he focused on how its bad because they don't communicate anything and leave users a bit confused rather than delighted, that would be a good point. Leave Brittney alone though – don't chew out design teams by name.
Neat blog theme there

You're welcome luke!
We're really trying to highlight what we can offer to our client in this iteration, in addition to beefing up the design. Our products are still very much a part of thoughtbot, but they should also stand on their own.
Really, how so?
