Workspaces 008 - Austin Valleskey

Welcome to Workspaces! We bring you inside the workspaces of creative individuals. Workspaces hopes to inspire you by showing you the toolkit that many creatives use to do their daily work. ☕️


Austin Valleskey is the co-founder of Bonfire, a new social app to chat about your interests. Where many other apps highlight follower and like counts, Bonfire does not. In fact, Bonfire doesn’t even show follower or like counts inside the app. Instead, you share with others inside the same “Camps” or topics.

Prior to co-founding Bonfire, Austin worked on Cash App and Gifs.com. He also created Impossible Rush, an iPhone game with 1,000,000+ downloads.
