I’m excited to share a batch of new work that I’ve produced in recent months. I don’t like feeling like I’ve been sitting on work for a little while without sharing it, so from now on I’ll be updating the work a bit more regularly. For now there are eight new projects available for your viewing pleasure, highlights including an editorial piece for Design Bureau, an experimental type project for Proximity Chicago, and the results of an impromptu photo shoot with dance/rock band, Rites!
From the looks of their crisp, bright white website, Inventory Magazine is absolutely bursting with class and style. A curation of Ideas in Product, Craft & Culture— I like that.
The site is a work of art, from designer Stuart Hobday. His work is consistently intelligent, grid-loyal and always, always fresh as hell.
The last week or so has been spent hosting some loving guests of mine, here in Chicago. If you have ever tried to host your close friends in a city as large as this one—which they’ve never visited before—you would consequently skip a few days of blog posting as well!
It’s nice to know that neglecting my blog hasn’t stopped the Earth from rotating!

I know you’ve seen the work of Rafael Rozendaal at one time or another. Anytime between now and 2001, you may have stumbled upon interactive work like Fatal to the Flesh, Much Better Than This, or Cold Void. If you haven’t seen these, then you most certainly have seen his classics, Jello Time, From the Dark Past, and Color Flip.
Go visit Rafael’s site and let me know what your favorites are!
I’ve been seeing the web through the scope of the advertising industry lately; making constant attempts to push the creative envelope, desperately trying to deliver the unexpected. But how can you simplify an abstract idea, and still preserve it’s charm with the infinite restrictions that stand in your way?
Skittles found a way to translate the endlessness of a rainbow to the web, in a simple and always-growing vertical scroll site. Experience the Rainbow delivers the quirky sensibilities of the recent branding, with bizarre web content, twitter stats, animated gifs, and above all – every color of the rainbow!

I’m excited to share the newest online effort from Abbott Miller, a remarkably fresh and user-friendly Neue Galerie website! Not knowing much about the space itself, I am able to coast through the pages with ease, and have absolutely no trouble at all familiarizing myself with the content. Easily one of the nicer luxuries of the site, is the ability to explore each of the current collections held in the gallery!
Excerpt from the Pentagram blog:
Miller’s design for the site is an extension of the physical materiality of the building, taking its cues from the strong black, gold and wood details of the interior and building on the museum’s bold graphic identity and signage designed by Pandiscio Co. The emphatic masthead ties into the governing metaphor of the site redesign: leveraging the heritage of modernist publication design.
Project Team: Abbott Miller, partner-in-charge and designer; Kristen Spilman and Susan Brzozowski, designers.
Bonus point: I am in love with the site header—absolutely cannot get over those enormous gold characters!
