Hello faithful fridge users, I thought it was about time I explained why things have been so quiet. The answer is simple really – no spare time.
The time I used to spend updating the site has been swallowed up by three other projects.
1. Etch – things have been busy since we started the company 12 months ago.
2. LassoPlan.com – building a new product for teachers
3. Being a Dad – I made a baby in June, and they poop and eat a lot!
Some of you may be surprised to learn that Design Fridge is run by me and me only, and the only reason I started it was to keep track of all the sites I liked.
What started as a tool for personal use, has grown into a resource that’s used by thousands everyday – which is awesome and why I’ve kept the site running.
Without fresh content, the site is not so useful anymore and this makes me feel a bit guilty.
Time to get things back on track
Believe it or not, I have found time to squeeze in the start of redesign. The current version of Design Fridge is nearly 4 years old, so it’s long over due a redesign, hoping to get the new version live in October.
To make sure it get’s enough attention, I’ve moved Design Fridge over to be an Etch side-project. That way the whole team can look after the site, and maybe take it up a gear.
We’re adding some new features to the new version of DF, and if there’s any features you’d like to add, now’s the time to suggest it.
