National Maker Faire launch site in collaboration with the White House. Role: copywriting, design, and creative direction.

BrandingUI/UXWeb Design
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.

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 shot was a no-go because of the flames.

The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game
This preschool game was born out of a trip to Tokyo, where I saw a multitude of training chopsticks for children. The idea of using chopsticks as the centerpiece of a game grew into the Squirrel Squeezers, which encourage children to harvest acorns while practicing their fine motor skills. I sketched a tree-shaped box and worked with the factory to develop this hand-wrapped, fully illustrated package that doubles as the game board.
