Here are some photos I took over the last week. (They are snapshots taken with my Treo 600 camera phone.)

I usually work in the South Bay, but my company has hired an outside firm, Hillman Curtis, to help redesign our homepage. I've been working on location with HC in some rented loft space in the SoMa district of San Francisco. The firm's from NYC, but they rented loft space in San Francisco, about a block from where I used to live and work.

Hillman Curtis is a guy -- author, well known designer, pusher of Flash technology -- and well as the name of his firm. There's him, 4 other designers from his firm, an intern designer, a designer from our company who's only been at working for us for a couple months, and me. In addition to brainstorming, pencil and digital sketching, and other design activities, I bring two things to the table. The first is a focus on technology. Being a Web Developer, I'm interested in the technical patterns and practices that make up the internet. The second thing I bring is a pretty deep understanding of my company. I've been working there for about three years now, and paying attention most of that time. I've worked in several different roles of the past years so I have a pretty wide view of the company -- it's needs, capabilities, tendencies, politics and vision.

Anyways, here are ten photos from about the loft.
