I'm starting my own Drupal shop

So, I’m finally able to break the news. I’ve been planning this since before DrupalCon, but there’s been a lot of things needing to get done before I could take the final step and do it.

I am, as of half an hour ago, a registered independent business owner in the kingdom of Denmark. I am not alone in this. I have a very good friend and mentor backing me up and guiding me every step of the way – and for that I’m grateful.

The company name is “Reveal IT”. That is perhaps a bit silly, but I hope to help my clients to find out how to tap into the potential of IT, so I don’t think it’s too far fetched.

I’m going to offer Drupal-related services, primarily consulting and development, but also hosting for my clients. I’m not going into the hosting business for real, but I want to host the solutions I create for my customers myself, if at all possible, to avoid the hassles of shared hosting.

Besides working like crazy at Peytz & Co. (now as a freelancer), I have been working on my presentation for saturday, where I’ll be presenting Drupal, filling in for Robert Douglass, and trying to work out design, identity and website for my new company. I’ve settled on a font (Gill Sans), but I’m struggling with the colours. Perhaps something like this. Or this. Or this, this, this, this, this, this, this or this?
What do you think?

Anyways, I’m going to get a website up as fast as I can make it with more details, but if you are in the eastern part of Denmark and in need of Drupal assistance of any kind, feel free to hit me up via my contact form or call me at +45 22 17 29 98.

Also, I’m going to partner with Acquia (congratulations on launching, by the way), and I look forward to working with them and other partners. I’ve been beta-testing their product for a while, and I can only say that if you’re into Drupal, you should certainly check it out. Highly recommended.

So, that’s all for now. If you have any ideas concerning colours, logo or other things, I’d love to hear from you.
