As a digital designer, most of my work is done on a computer. The computer creates crisp lines. It aligns multiple objects with a single click. It renders thousands of frames in seconds. In short, it’s exact. Precision, however, does not always equal perfection. There’s no better proof of ...

Communication via text messaging isn’t always pretty. Who among us hasn’t sent a text only to receive “???” in reply? Fucking autocorrect.

Sketchy Countries

Here are some illustrations I did for the web. I think they’re pretty fun and charming. The wavy pattern (from subtle patterns, one of my go to design resources!) reminds me of topographical marks on more traditional maps.

It stores, it works, it rolls—introducing the able table! Bad copywriting aside, if you’re looking for an all-purpose studio table that’s functional, inexpensive, and relatively easy to make, this is a good solution.
