Old fashioned, hands-on, grit, community
Visual Direction » As I read the stories of these individuals, what stood out to me was the tight-knit community’s love for this craft. To capture that spirit, I combined vibrant colors with brush stokes, humanist sans-serif type, and a wide three-row layout.
Process » These are some of my early sketches for the book’s cover and endpages.
What else? I’m curious about how we can make modern tools work for people. So any role that lets me bring customers into how everyday products and services are made would be a nice fit. Think user research and testing, interaction design, or content strategy. The emerging technology space is always changing, so I’m always learning.
