On this day, 10 years ago, I started a little site called Design Milk. I could probably write a book about my personal journey and adventures in entrepreneurship (embrace failures and mistakes!), how much this site means to me (a lot), how it has changed my life (tons)…. Instead, I’d like to simply say thanks. Thanks to all the designers, artists, and brands who have shared their projects with us. Thank you to the readers who have been so supportive by reading, following and sharing over the years, and those of you who came out to celebrate with us in NYC during NYCxDesign. And, a special thank you to our sponsors, partners, supporters, colleagues, my super supportive family, and to my amazing staff! I could never have imagined having this dream job, so thank you everyone for making it possible. <3
Design Milk’s core mission is to share great design with you every day, and that hasn’t changed in 10 years. This site was built on a foundation of integrity. Design Milk is 100% self-funded, so we need to pay the bills here and there, but our primary goal is to provide great content and share inspirational, innovative, cool, exciting and interesting design. We are all actual human beings—not robots—pounding the pavement, as well as the computer keys and mice to make this site happen every day. Virtual hugs to all of you who help keep this thing going. If you’ve been with me since the beginning, I raise a glass to you and say cheers!
