A professional eulogy for the first designer to leave my team

(He’s just taking another job, but I’m still grieving, ok??)

Recently, one of my designers announced he was leaving my team for another opportunity. So, he’s not actually dead per se, but he’s dead to me 👻 (j/k). And as a result, I’ve decided the best thing I can do is write him a proper eulogy.

Actually, looking back, his choice of “The Gone World” was a bit prescient.

By day, executive designer at Innovatemap where I help tech companies design marketable products. By night, co-founder of UX Power Tools.
