A thank-you to three awesome friends

by | Jan 9, 2014 | Housekeeping


On Monday I published the best thing I’ve ever made: a free online guidebook that has everything you need to keep your New Year’s resolutions this year.

If you’ve checked out the guidebook, you’ve probably seen how amazing it looks and works. Behind every awesome project is awesome people, and even though I highlighted the folks who worked on the project in the book itself, my three friends who worked on the guide with me deserve 100x the recognition they got in the book, which is what this post is for.

Here’s who did what, and why they’re awesome:

Chris Sauve: Web Programming

For a man so humble, Chris Sauve is one freaking talented human being. He’s single-handedly responsible for the web development of the guide, and is the reason the web version works so great (especially on your phone/tablet!)

Ryan Wang: Design

There’s only one reason the book looks so incredible: Ryan Wang. Ryan took care of all of the design elements of the guide, and he has also been generous enough to help me out with a bunch of design elements on AYOP in the past. He’s a pretty cool dude.

Zack Lovatt: Motion Design

Zack Lovatt a good friend of mine, and he’s also one of the most talented people I know. Zack’s a motion designer based in Toronto, Canada, and he’s worked on the motion design behind a number of feature films, like White House Down and Gnomeo and Juliet. He’s also why the video that accompanies the guidebook looks so great.

As always, thanks for reading. I can’t wait to share what I have in store in 2014 with you.
