Forrst has been acquired by COLOURlovers

This in on the Forrst blog the other day. Another IT startup sold!



Forrst has been acquired by COLOURlovers

I’m thrilled to announce that Forrst has been acquired by the folks behind COLOURlovers and Creative Market, and that Keith, Mike, and I will be joining their team.
It’s crazy to think that Forrst started two years ago as nothing more than a side project used by just a handful of colleagues. Fast forward to today, and it’s become a place where nearly 50,000 designers and developers are able to share knowledge and get feedback on what they’re working on, and connect in meaningful ways with people that share their passion.
Growing a community is no easy business, and I’m immensely proud of the job we’ve done thus far. Now, with Darius and his team we have a chance to scale the Forrst community and vision even bigger. They understand community in a way few folks do, and I’m really excited about the future of Forrst, and indeed, that of the entire COLOURlovers family.
While I’m certain some aspects of Forrst will make their way into the other COLOURlovers sites and vice versa, Forrst will continue to operate as its own product. It’s a truly great fit with COLOURlovers’ bigger vision to help designers and developers alike grow their craft and be rewarded for their talents.
