If you haven’t heard of Happy Cog, they are an internationally-recognized web design consultancy responsible for the design of Ma.gnolia, Advertising Age, Housing Works, and the recent redesign of WordPress 2.5 (the CMS on which this blog runs). They also founded this little online magazine you may have heard of, A List Apart (note: that was sarcasm).
Jeffrey Zeldman is the founder of Happy Cog and almost single-handedly responsible for jump-starting the web standards movement. He is one of the world’s first bloggers and the co-founder, with Eric Meyer, of An Event Apart.
My point is this: if you work on the web and haven’t heard of Happy Cog and Jeffrey Zeldman, you haven’t been paying attention.
I think it goes without saying that Jeffrey is a pioneer, and it was an honor to be introduced to him, let alone get the chance to work alongside him. We meshed instantly and the past three months working with him has been an absolute pleasure.
I wanted to take a moment to thank Jeffrey and all of Happy Cog publicly for enabling me to work with this incredible team of esteemed practitioners on some of the most coveted projects on the web today. I am humbled by this opportunity and can’t wait to help them make gorgeous websites that benefit people around the world.
Thank you so much.
