Mark Brown

A fresh start

Last year was a big year. I worked really really hard, put my heart and soul into my work, only to start all over again at the end of the year.


  • Left my church of 10 years
  • Left my job of 4 years
  • Moved house & location
  • Traveled alone through South East Asia & China
  • Did a lot more design work
  • Learnt Ruby on Rails
  • Built a really cool web application
  • Became really opinionated

Leaving the corporate machine

To put it simply, I ended up feeling a bit like Peter Gibbons in Office Space.

People at work were bitter, lazy & unfocused, they lacked leadership.

It was a long time coming, I was tired of working on large corporate projects for large corporate clients. I wanted to try working in a more creative environment along side people more focused on good design principles. I feel it will be a more enjoyable work experience and more rewarding also.

And so, I'm branching out into the world of freelance, getting fit & meeting new people. Happy days.
