Hope you all had a wicked fun Halloween. It's one of our favorite holidays. We dressed James up as a turkey in anticipation for our second favorite holiday that's just around the bend: Thanksgiving!
On that note, allow us to speak a little bit about the recent developments on our team. Jenna is officially full-time today, and we couldn’t be more excited to get her started on some really exciting projects. Also, we've brought on another designer, Mitch Bartlett, who works from England! Matt and Mitch are in the GMT+1 timezone, and are still outnumbered (two to four!), but now Matt has someone to help plan world domination while the rest of the team is still asleep.
More travel news: Mike and James will be on the road again from November 6-10, in San Diego, CA, this time for Pictage’s PartnerCon 2011, where they'll be showing off the fancy Nimbus designs we've been working on for the last year and hanging out with hundreds of amazing photographers. If you're in the area and want to meet up, get in touch with James and let him know!
That's about all for now. We published four new blogs in October, and you can find links to those below. We're always looking for feedback, which you can give by filling out the client survey, or by sending an email to James!
A quick reminder that our new pricing structure takes effect as of today across the board for all new projects. If you missed that announcement, you can view the details in last month's Phuseletter.
