When I first chased a few buddies from college up to the Pacific northwest, we had an idea to start a side business to tap into all our shared work experience. 2 of us went into UX/ UI and motion graphics, one went into the aerospace industry and I stuck with products / hardware.
Better late than never. Rubber Factory was officially born in 2017! We share the work evenly, for whoever wants to chip in, and so far the feed-back has been really positive.
You know when your colleagues have talent, but seeing it in practice in arenas you aren’t necessarily familiar is always an inspiration!
