MAKE is a company producing DIY projects and encourages creativity throught very interesting do-yourself toys and electronics. They also host Maker Faire, which is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.
With direction from creative, Riley Wilkerson, I had the opportunity to design two pins for the Maker Fair event happening May 17-18, 2014. One pin is a rocket image. The rocket is a great symbol of exploration that happens with MAKE. The second is inspired by a wonderful creation called "Russell the Giraffe" who I have yet to meet. Both pins contain a circuit board and comes in a package containing materials like a light bulb and battery holders for participants to assemble their own light up pin!
