Joel Page, RIP

Andrew Abernathy:

For those who knew him: @JoelPage passed away last night.

For those who didn’t know: he was at @OmniGroup for approaching two decades, starting on the Support team in 2003, later also becoming the longtime PM for OmniGraffle, and a member of the UX team. He designed and created loads of our icons, including the app icons still on our apps today. (I don’t know if he had a favorite, but I do know a particular aspect of the OmniWeb icon that he was rather proud of.)

Gus Mueller:

Joel was a good guy, and a friend. And even with his terminal diagnosis, he was always in high spirits. I don’t know how he did it. He’ll be missed.

That's so sad! He was very open on social media about his diagnostic but it still comes as a shock to me. I've interacted with him for longer than I can remember and even met him in Seattle back in the days when I localized some of the OmniGroup apps in French. What a great guy! Always so insightful. He will sure be missed!
