The Story So Far...

Every great product has a story behind it and Desk is no exception. The original concept came to me when I was on a road trip down the Florida coast more than 13 years ago. I was drafting a blog post in the passenger seat and thought about how sad it was that I wasn't able to publish a blog post while in transit. Remember, this was before wireless hotspots and serious mobile technology!

But I continued to dream about an intuitive and super-simple publishing interface. I was a young engineer and didn't yet have the technical experience nor the product design background to put something together quite yet.

In late 2013 I decided that it was time and so I began quietly putting together the pieces of what I believed would be a comprehensive yet hyper-focused native OS X app that would close the gap between a writer's ideas and their digital publishing presence. And when I made the project public I had didn't expect that it would resonate so widely with so many people.

Most importantly Desk has helped thousands of people publish thousands of blog posts that they would have never otherwise published. I consider myself fortunate and blessed to have helped so many people tell so many great stories all across the world. What an honor and pleasure; it brings me joy.

Desk focuses on what matters most: Writing. (And it has one of the best app icons I’ve ever seen — perfect metaphor, beautifully rendered.)

Get teleported to an earlier, typewritten age. All that’s missing is the “ding” sound when you hit the end of a line.
