About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm helping create a new sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Introducing Sidebar Creative

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

Today, a new team is born. No, it’s not a new com­pany (per se), but a col­lec­tive of devel­op­ers and design­ers who all share the same goals, run their own con­sul­tan­cies, are active in the web stan­dards com­mu­nity, and want big­ger and bet­ter things for the web community.

We are authors, design­ers, pro­gram­mers, and thinkers. We love XHTML/CSS, we cham­pion usabil­ity while striv­ing for good looks (in our designs ;) and we love branding.

The list really goes on and on (we get along really well, we’re all musi­cians, etc.) but the most impor­tant thing is that together, we will be able to tackle larger projects than we could on our own (and per­haps more impor­tantly, larger clients may approach us as a group where they might not indi­vid­u­ally) and have a ton of fun in the process.

So, who are we? As indi­vid­u­als, you may know the gang as Steve Smith, Jon Snook and Bryan Veloso. You can even lis­ten to us ram­ble on about it on a brand new episode of Live from the 101. But it’s the sum of the parts that really makes this exciting.

We are Side­bar Cre­ative, and we’re just get­ting started.
