Wherein I Shamelessly Pimp My New Employer's Service.

As I post this, I am about to enjoy a 10-minute commute to a brand new job. I have joined the team of energetic and passionate folks at Viewzi. For the uninitiated, Viewzi is a visual contextual search engine. Instead of delivering search results right away in a standard text-based manner like most search engines, Viewzi answers your search request with a “view mix.” That view mix offers you a variety of ways that you can visualize your search results. Once you choose a “view,” you experience your search results. Today marks the launch of the public beta, so we are all excited to see how Viewzi is received by a wider audience.

The service launches today at 7:00 p.m. CST.

I’ll be handling a variety of visual design responsibilities at Viewzi, both public-facing (views) and admin-facing. I’ll miss my design compadres in Room 404 a whole lot, but I’m excited to get my hands into all the stuff Viewzi has got going on here and design some wicked cool things!
