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.

Grandma's Trunk Game and Package Design
This preschool game was a blast to conceive and design. I hired artist Tascha Parkinson to paint 26 letters of the alphabet traditionally on canvas for the cards that make up the game. She also hand painted straps, buckles, and country "stickers" for the packaging, which added such charm to the finished illustrations. The packaging, when complete, looked like it had been hand painted by Tascha, as I specified a canvas-textured paper substrate for printing. She even painted her own cat Lily on the inside of the trunk...so adorable. We opted to go with a minimal cardboard bellyband as the final on-shelf consumer packaging, so that the entire trunk could be seen at retail. What a delight this project was to design!
