Sometimes you need to challenge your assumptions. That was exactly what UN Women was looking to do when they asked us to create Transform magazine. The Evaluation Office routinely audits UN Women activities, generating lengthy reports with analysis, insights and recommendations... that few people actually read. Looking to make the insightful, but dry, content more appealing to a broader audience, we created a newsstand-quality magazine, with a  journalistic design.

I shared some wisdom in the recently-published book How to Become a 3D Printing Entrepreneur.

As we're all thinking about Earth Day today, we want to share a project we've been working on that aims to make climate-friendly technology more globally available. The Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN), part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, was founded with the mission to speed up global adoption of envoronmentally-sound technologies. We were tasked with developing a visual system that makes their services more accessible, while clarifying the breadth of offerings.
