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 shot was a no-go because of the flames.

Integrated art and design direction across product, social, eCommerce, and retail channels.

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.
