Vesting Time

Matthew Panzarino:

The founder of Dutch software firm Sofa and its former art director have left Facebook after two years. Founder Koen Bok and art director Jorn van Dijk have both announced that today is their last day at the firm and that they will be leaving to do new things.

Sofa was acquired by Facebook almost spot on two years ago (about the time it takes shares to vest) at which time the team sold off its two big software products Kaleidoscope and versions to software firm Black Pixel.

Will be interesting to see how many other designer acqui-hires bail on Facebook when their two years are up.
