It just dawned on me that Monday marks my 21st anniversary in business. There is a press announcement going out tomorrow, strangely not about that—but it is funny that it is going out on our 21st birthday. It’s been a good 21 years, with a few hiccups but not serious enough to harm us. The high points would be scoring the ﬁrst font licensing deal; starting Lucire in 1997; and being recognized to contribute to the Medinge Group. Along the way I have met many good souls, too numerous to mention, but those who spring to mind right now include Stefan Engeseth, Stanley Moss, Chris Macrae, Paddianne and Don Neely, Camille Sanson, Ian Ryder, Demian Rosenblatt, Elyse Glickman, Christine Arden, Panos Papadopoulos, Hugh Derham, Don Roberts, Mike Parker, Alice Goulter, Andrew Cross, Johnnie Moore, Brian Willson, Edward Hodges, Simon Green, Nicky and Simon Casey, Christine Inwood, David Sanders, Bruce Newman, Brenda Newman, Jean-François Porchez, Bruno Maag, Stephen Ciuccoli, David Lemon, Clive Bruton, Sandy McLendon, Peter Singer, John Jones, Zuzana Licko and Rudy VanderLans, Nigel Dunn, Tim Kitchin, Ian Baillie, Nicholas Ind, Amanda van Kuppevelt, Sicco van Gelder, Merci Robles, Jure Stojan, Valerie Harper, Bill Shepherd, Erik Spiekermann, Rosie Kropp, Ali Sabbagh, Thomas Gad and Anette Rosencreutz, Tanya Sooksombatisatian, Miguel Kirjon, Tamsin Cooper, David Cooper, Emily Cooper, Ana Hickmann, Douglas Rimington, Valentin Lapusca, Mirella Lapusca, Paolo Zampolli, Sarah Garlick, Laura Ming-Wong and Adrian Owen, Paolo Vanossi, Ann Fryer, Donna Tulloch, Carolyn Enting, Phillip Johnson, Eddie Uken, Jason Moon, Angie Ruiz and Mark Tarbeek, Portia Holt, Mark Geard, Simone Knol, Megan Tuffery, Ingrid Kennedy, Richard Spiegel, Glenda Wynyard, Daron Curtiss, Merrill Fernando, Dilhan Fernando, Stevie Wilson, Matthew Breen, Andrew Bridge, John Challis, Dave Challis, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Hilary Rowland, Corinne and Ted Davidov, Hayley Lynch Robinson, Dennis and Robbie Shinn, Benjamin Keith, David Philpott, David Patin, Matthew Carter and Cherie Cone.
There are many, many others, and please do not take an omission here as signiﬁcant. These blog posts are not as well thought through as you might think.
Here’s to the next celebration. Twenty-ﬁve? Posted by Jack Yan, 09:46
Thank you Jack for including my name on that list. I like to think that as a former member of the Lucire family that I had a hand in helping (as all your staff did) in creating the dynamics of an online & print magazine that still presents a universal voice.
Thanks for the mention Jack, nice to be in such good company.Post a Comment
And here's to the next 21

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
