Clearleft

Most of you probably know this already, but I’ve joined forces with Andy and Richard. Collectively, we are known as Clearleft.

Yeah, it’s a geeky name: kind of an in-joke for any CSS designers. I wanted us to be known as Super Best Friends Club but the others weren’t so keen on that idea.

Clearleft is a registered company. A real, proper grown-up company. Gulp!

Andy and Richard are the company directors. I am what’s known as a non-executive director. Like, you know when they have ex-prime ministers on the board of a company? That’s me. I am to Clearleft as Al Gore is to Apple (except I didn’t invent the internet). Basically, I’m still technically freelancing but I’ll be gradually moving all my work over to Clearleft. At some future point, I’ll probably become a fully fledged director complete with anointing ceremony.

The company has been up and running for a little while now and we’ve just launched the first incarnation of our website.

It’s a fairly bare-bones brochureware affair. It will be expanded over time with articles, a blog, case studies and anything else that life throws at us.

If you hate the design, blame Andy. If the site architecture and copy makes you puke, it’s Richard’s fault. If you have issues with the XHTML, CSS or JavaScript, I’m the culprit.
