Twitter just acquired some valuable new talent. This morning it was confirmed via Twitter (see tweet below) that indeed they have acquired internet design studio, Nclud.
Nclud’s co-founder and director of brand experience Martin Ringlein will be headed out to California to join Twitter at their headquarters as the company's new design manager.
Ringlein and several other employees from the Washington-based design studio were hired to help Twitter with their International design efforts. Also, the Nclud brand may live on even though it has been bought-up by Twitter, but no details on the deal have yet been released. What is known, is that Twitter officially owns Nclud's IP.
Nclud is best known for its work as an advertising and marketing design agency. Some of their more prominent work has been on projects for Oracle designing iPhone apps, but they do work for both web and mobile screens. We'll keep you updated as more information about the acquisition and a possible Twitter facelift becomes available.
