To the left is a small sample of the work done both on and offline for the Obama 2012 campaign. All was a true team effort from the Design, Development and Tech teams. Without the amazing individuals on each, none would have been possible.
The Building 8 team's goal at Facebook is to create and ship new, category-defining consumer hardware products that are social first. To do so at scale. And to power this with a breakthrough innovation engine modeled after DARPA. As a team of world-class experts, we drive innovation in the areas of augmented and virtual reality, artificial intelligence, connectivity, and more -- and operate on aggressive, fixed timelines with extensive use of partnerships in universities, and small-large businesses.
Posters are a way outside of work that I stay inspired. My introduction and love for them came from this fine gentleman:
"The digital world has branded me a dinosaur and a nonconformist. They generally find much amusement in me and love to tease me about my "old school" ways. All because I think the computer is a terrible design tool. It shields the designer from what he/she is actually supposed to be doing. I still work with my mind, my hands, my ideas.
Because so much of my career was built around nothing (no budget, no nothing), I had to work with whatever I had to use. I became a master of really shitty printing. I can make bad printing look like a million bucks. I can make lettering with a potato. I can dig into a garbage can and create an award-winning, important design. That's simply because I know the processes involved".
The Hurricane Poster Project was an international collaboration of artists and designers to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Posters were designed, produced and then sold online, with profits donated to the Red Cross. This is my contribution.
SO-CAL POSTER PROJECT
Client: Personal project For: American Red Cross
I started The So-Cal Poster Project following wildfires that devastated Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego counties. Signed and numbered, limited edition posters were donated by designers and artists from around the globe to be sold online for victims of the wildfires. All proceeds were donated to the American Red Cross.
THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT
Client: Personal project For: Doctors Without Borders
I started the Haiti Poster Project with friend Leif Steiner three days after the earthquake hit Haiti. Signed and numbered, limited edition posters were donated by designers and artists from around the world to be sold online with all proceeds donated to Doctors Without Borders.
