Loren Brichter + Jelly
Even if you work with some of the best people in the world across several fields of expertise, there will always be more brilliant people outside your company than inside. Jelly has started assembling an external pool of skill to help us build a world-class product.
Because Jelly is mobile, we sought one of the most talented individuals in the world of mobile development to be the first member of Jelly’s Executive Advisory Board. Loren Brichter has agreed to lend us his genius, as needed.
Loren was an engineer at Apple who worked on the original iPhone—a true groundbreaker. After Apple, he started atebits which made an iOS app called Tweetie that was acquired by Twitter and turned into the official Twitter app for iOS.
Next, Loren made Letterpress, a deceptively simple asynchronous word game that has just won a coveted Apple Design Award for 2013. The Apple Design Awards recognize apps that raise the bar in design, technology, and innovation.
We are proud and lucky to have Loren as part of our extended team—he will make us better at our own work. More importantly, Loren’s participation means that Jelly will be a finer product in general. That’s just good for everyone.
