So long, Suitey

On 20 August, I say goodbye to Click Suite after 6 1/2 years as independent chairman of the board.  It's been a real privilege to work with founders Emily Loughnan (@suitey)  and Rex McIntosh (@rexmac66).  As one of NZ's most innovative interactive media design studios, Click Suite has produced exciting work for both the GLAM sector (galleries, libraries, archives & museums) and organisations wanting strong strategy- & brand-focused audience interaction (food & beverage, banking, energy, government). They've prided themselves on not doing the obvious, and on being early adopters of new interactive technologies & techniques.  Rarely, something didn't work - that's the risk when you're breaking new ground - but more often then not, it worked brilliantly.  A personal highlight for me was being part of a pitch to BBC Children's TV in London; we didn't get the work (the winner was Do Nothing) but we really impressed them.

But 6 years is long enough as chairman.  As Click Suite enters the next stage of its development, it's time for me to move on.  Thanks, Emily & Rex, it's been great.

So I am now open for other opportunities, should anyone have something substantial, interesting and with lots of potential.
