    Wired Anniversary Visualization

    Somehow I missed this when it ran back in the June 2008 issue of Wired. The cool research scientists over at IBM's Visual Communication Lab, Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg, created a custom algorithm to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Wired. The results are beautiful – a page in the issue, and a poster too. On their web page, they demonstrate the technique using 3 of my cover designs as examples. How cool!


    Spy Magazine Cover Gallery

    My first "real" job was an internship at SPY magazine, back in the late 1980s. Upon graduation, I joined the staff as an art director, and got to work with some legends: B.W. Honeycutt, Kurt Andersen, Graydon Carter, Tom Phillips, as well as some legends in the making, like Christiaan Kuypers and Michael Hainey (hi guys). It was the best job I've ever had – it taught me pretty much everything I know about editorial design, journalism, and most of all, humor. 
    Kurt has posted a nice little slideshow of the SPY covers. I worked on a bunch of the later ones. 

    Craft redesign launched

    In 2009, we stopped printing Craft: magazine and took it all online. The challenge was how to recreate the magazine experience online, and offer readers even more great content. With the help of our editor, Natalie Zee Drieu, designer Katie Wilson, web manager Tatia Wieland-Garcia, managing editor Shawn Connally, and a great staff of writers and editors, I think we nailed it. I'm proud of the overall design, and couldn't have done it without everyone's contribution of ideas and content.

    Here's a sample of the final design, without ads and pre-html.
