I’m Nick. My favorite thing to do is make things. I’m making Eariously, which lets you listen to the things you want to read by turning anything (e.g. websites, emails, articles, PDFs, images) into audio for you to listen to on your phone or laptop.

What I’m Making Right Now

 
Nick Rimsa Eariously

Eariously lets you listen to the things you want to read by turning anything (e.g. websites, emails, articles, PDFs, images) into audio for you to listen to on your phone or laptop. With too many things to read and not enough time, my partner Brendan Barr and I decided to make something for ourselves.

 
 
Nick Rimsa Move Slow and Learn Things

Move Slow and Learn Things is a three-person software design and development team based in Waterville, Maine. We help individuals and businesses turn their ideas into reality by working together to design and develop software for customers’ needs. We also teach two-day design workshops around New England to students and communities interested in exploring design. After teaching product design at Colby College for January and the spring semester of 2019, we realized that lots of people want to make things. But, taking the first step is the hardest part. The project has led us to working together with some tremendous humans (who you can read more about below).

Nick Rimsa Weart

Weart provides young, up-and-coming artists with a mobile canvas to make money. Every two months, the team selects a young artist, the artist selects a piece from their work, the team prints it on a shirt, and the artist keeps a cut of the sale.
