    New Gig

    As of November 2010, I'm working a new gig in Silicon Valley. MAKE was fantastic, and now it's time to do other fantastic things elsewhere. I'll be posting less work now, so this site is more of an archive up until 2010. When I do something new, I'll post it for sure, but it'll be sporadic at best. 


    Latest & Greatest: MAKE Special Issue

    Right on the heels of MAKE: Volume 24, we produced a special issue for MAKE, the Ultimate Workshop + Tool Guide. Large format, new design, and an exclusive cover and photo feature on Adam Savage (of Mythbusters) and his awesome new workshop in San Francisco. The highlight of the issue was hanging out with Adam in his new space on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Every object around has a story, and usually it's hilarious. Adam's a born Maker, a great guy, and a true talent. 


    Latest issue, Volume 24: SPACE, is out!

    Our latest and greatest issue is out now. In the special section, I designed a new grid to accommodate more, shorter editorial pieces within the same space – not an easy feat in a magazine with a tiny trim size. But it worked great! Here is the section opener (inspired by old Soviet-era space ephemera) and a sample spread. 


    Recent Work for MAKE

    Over in the Portfolio section of the site, I'm posting some recent (and not-so-recent) work I've done for MAKE. Check out the ever-growing example of MAKE design – we've been busy! 


    Make: Projects Update

    While Make: Projects still in Beta, it's been refined and tweaked and is now launched for all to see. Have a look at the latest news on our blog for a full review of what went into it. And take a look at the latest version of the site, and go build something while you're at it.


    Make: Volume 23 Finished

    We just finished printing the latest issue of Make: Magazine, Volume 23, which is all about gadgets. Check out the fancy use of day-glo ink on the cover to illuminate Adam Koford's clever little mosquitoes. The day-glo looks way better on the newsstand, so do us a favor and go get yourself a copy. You'll thank me later.  


    New Site Design in Beta - Make: Projects

    Make: Magazine's newest venture, Make: Projects, has launched in beta this weekend, just in time for Maker Faire 2010. It's a collaborative online site devoted to DIY projects of all kinds, just like Make: Magazine. I designed the main site, along with the help of the great team at, who developed all of the technology behind the amazing Wiki-based site. Stay tuned for more developments, updates, and tweaks as the site gets tested during Maker Faire, and beyond.


    Make: magazine Website Redesign In-Progress, New for Vol. 22

    Today we've launched a few new pages on our website,, showing readers the beginning of our efforts to better reflect the print magazine online. 

    Take a look at the landing page here. You'll find a nice new home for each volume of the magazine, complete with a promotional video showing off featured content, access to online projects, and more.

    The new single volume page offers a more dynamic take on the previous "current volume" page, giving readers access to downloads, extras, and additional content, along with a complete Table of Contents. 

    Our new "Other Issues" page reveals a complete gallery of all covers of Make: magazine, with summaries and clickable links to each issue. 

    It's the first step in our complete redesign of the website. More cool sneak peaks coming soon. 




    Make: Volume 22 on newsstands

    We just completed our issue dedicated to remote control projects. On the cover, a remote-controlled lawnmower. How's that for a life made easier by technology? Start making one in time for summer!
