George has recently joined the Geeks at App Devs HQ after finishing college. He was looking for a job in the local area and stumbled across us, so he sent an email wondering if we had any junior UI positions available. Well, as a matter of fact Georgey if you looked at our blogs you would have known for SURE that we are looking for exactly that someone!
So within 2 days of sending what George described as a ‘hopeless punt email’ we’d employed him and had already started moving desks! He is now a mobile app designer.
George adds a new dimension to our UI team, a fresh set of eyes, a keen direction for colour palettes and style, and above all, an Android presence in the office! There’s two ways you can go in life, the ‘right’ way: Xbox and iPhone, or the ‘wrong’ way: PS3 & Android… He took the latter route!
George has a rather good portfolio, including some mobile app UI designs for Sega amongst others, and he really was what we’re looking for. The first task we set was a reskin of an application that we’d started a while back, which we can’t say much about, but it’s a good entry into the deepest end possible.
Welcome aboard George, and brace yourself, it’s a rollercoaster of emotion!
George says: “I couldn’t believe it, I found a mobile app & game development company near my house, so I emailed in, and went to see them that afternoon! I loved the office, and the team, and knew this is where I wanted to be.
Working with Aaron will be something special, he’s a very talented (some say special) guy and I know I can learn a lot from him. I’m just working hard now on a new project I’ve been given to reskin a really cool app.
I’ve only been here a week, but at my first weekend I actually wanted to get back to work! That’s something I’ve never felt before.”
