Raven hires three more Ones

Raven has been on a bit of a hiring spree, with several new employees in six months. This time, we’ve hired two developers and one creative director, bringing our total number of Ravens to 23.

As usual, I asked them all to pick out 10 questions to answer from the famous Vanity Fair Proust questionnaire. Also as usual, at least one person can’t count (but he’s a “creative,” so it’s probably not in his job description).

It’s your favorite part of these posts, isn’t it?
