Like you, we are huge design enthusiasts. We love pouring over design magazines and blogs. We want to be in the know of all the saucy happenings in the design industry. And with new online mags and blogs popping up almost every week these days, it is hard to keep up!! Still, we want to be on top of the latest and greatest! And so, we developed curateDE from a sheer need for making our daily dose of reading blogs and online magazines far more easier. No more missing out on juicy information or searching through tens of web sites and blogs for the best and your favorite content.
Now, you are wondering who is this "We"?? Well, curateDE was conceived by a fairly nerdy software guy who was always looking for the next BIG idea. In collaboration with his wife who just happens to be well into the design industry, he developed this "OMG! gorgeous unbelievable site" just for YOU! Well, it is too good to keep it just in the family, don't you think??
The Founders..Murali Narasimhan: Murali founded his company, Agate, LLC in 2003 to provide custom software solutions and consulting for clients including various US government organizations, Nextel, Sprint, Deloitte & Touche, and many more small-mid size firms across the country. He started building this "idea book" during his spare time from which sprang Authorati, MyContags, CodeBx, etc, etc. curateDE is the first site he has developed for the Design Industry.
And this is also Murali's first collaboration with his wife, Raji Radhakrishnan, an acclaimed interior designer who's work has been published in numerous national and local magazines and newspapers and whose projects span Washington, DC and New York.
