Made with Code is an initiative launched by Google to champion creativity, girls, and code.

The movement is designed to do three things: To inspire girls by celebrating women and girls who are using code to do great things; to engage girls to try coding through introductory projects and resources; and to sustain their interest by creating alliances and community around girls and coding.

Google is also collaborating with Code School to allow thousands of women and minorities everywhere to expand their skills. Through this online application you can get a free 3-month subscription to Code School. This opportunity is available to all traditionally underrepresented groups in technology (including, but not limited to, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, women and veterans).

Also check out this series of videos they shot which highlights inspiring women in tech, including Danielle Feinberg of Pixar, Erica Kochi of UNICEF, Limor Fried of Adafruit, and Maddy Maxey of Crated.

Here was a fun DIY project I helped out with at Auggie back in November 2013. Robot March is one of their more popular prints, so we thought it would be cool to let kids print and color in their own robot creations. My sister, mariahmakes did an awesome job with a set of her own, so we did a mini photoshoot on her desk (using a folded yellow duo-tang as a backdrop). Filing this under “things I do at work that don’t feel like work.”
You can still build your own bot HERE and be sure to tag it #robotmarch if you’re posting it up on Instagram so that we can find it.

A few days ago, I launched this website for Alexandra Votsis, a Toronto fashion photographer currently studying and working in Florence. Much of the focus was in making it easy for her to upload, edit, and organize the photos herself, as well as creating a layout that presented them in a way that worked on most mobile devices. 
This turned out to be one of the funnest projects I’ve done in a while! Despite being in different time zones, communicating with her was such a breeze and we both had a similar idea in mind from the start. Go peep her portfolio!

“DIY is DESIGN IT YOURSELF. It’s absolutely NO FEAR. If you can’t fucking do it, LEARN HOW. You have to go out there and make it happen. You have to bullshit your way to any situation you can. If you don’t know how to design a house, it doesn’t matter. You know what to do. It’s inside of you.”

An awesome talk by Kate Moross who is coming out with a book for young artists and designers called Make Your Own Luck: A DIY Attitude to Graphic Design and Illustration

It’s okay…

  • to not have an opinion
  • to be unsure of things
  • to question
  • to doubt
  • to be wrong
  • to be honest with yourself
  • to start over
  • to change your mind
  • to be quiet
