We've been following Craig's work since he announced his agency departure for a life of nomadic freelance design, living on the slopes of Whistler. When we had the chance to finally work with him, we jumped.
Craig honestly redefined our expectations for remote design. From day one (maybe day two), he was a part of our team. He participated more in our Slack team than some of our own engineers — he quickly dove into product decisions, conversations, etc. He moved at the pace of our own process, quickly adapting to the tools we used and the ways we made decisions.
When it came to his actual work, Craig was like a kid with a bunch of legos (legos being our bootstrap design system). He'd throw together multiple versions of things in minutes, removing his ego from the process and just getting conversation going about the options and advantages/disadvantages of each.
Craig gets our absolute highest recommendation and we'd be thrilled to work with him again. We only parted ways because he took a full-time role. But the moment we can steal him back, we will.
