This past summer, the National Maker Faire in Washington D.C. kicked off a weeklong celebration of making. Our goal was to quickly launch a site that would initially capture email addresses and then later on house all relevant information about the event.
Role: site design, copywriting, and social media asset design
Desktop and mobile renders of the National Maker Faire launch site.
Mobile render mockup.
One of our favorite shots, but a little too risque for the launch.
This shot of children interacting with Russell the Electric Giraffe ended up being our top pick.
This little girl wears a cardboard Kit Rex dinosaur head by creator Lisa Glover​
This shot was a no-go because of the flames.

Social media assets for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Maker Pro Book Cover
This great book of essays by beginning and pro makers was in need of a cover. The brief required that I somehow convey the breadth of experience levels represented within the book, while focusing on "beginnings." I styled and shot tools and materials reminiscent of the making process and used a woodburner to inscribe a very rough-hewn "MAKER" in caps. I then composited the typography after some minor retouching.
