January's "Become a Prezi Designer" contest was a resounding success. Though we didn't find a Prezi designer for our SF office (still looking!), we did hire Ashley Whitlatch (University Evangelist from Seattle, WA), Travis Hitchcock (support/design intern from Chattanooga, TN), and David Oliviera (independent prezi designer from Lisbon, Portugal). Meet Ashley, Travis, and David and see their reactions to the contest below.
Ashley: “I never thought I would be moving to San Francisco, starting a brand new program for an amazing company, three months after entering an online contest the day before the deadline. Unbelievable.”
Travis: “I actually found out about the contest via Prezi’s Twitter account, and really entered the contest on a whim. [Prezi] enables you to tell your story in an innovative…captivating way…and as a design student, this was very exciting to me.”
Travis Hitchcock will be splitting his time between design work and assisting the Prezi support team.

David: “Honestly, I wasn’t focused on the prize…I only had in mind creating something cool and professional to share with people. A couple days after visiting the Budapest office, I was offered [a position] to become a freelancer and I didn’t even think twice!”
David has already started collaborating on custom prezis with our Prezi design team including prezis for SXSW and TED.
