Say Hello!
We're interested in your interest in MESH + Makeshop
Hey Philly! At @whartonschool today visually documenting game-changing students and the Wharton Social Impact Team. Double teamed video and photo art direction working with the talented philly locals Shira Yudkoff and Andrew Gormley. Can’t decide whether the visual work or the brain bursting conversations we heard today were the true highlight? 💫💫💫These folks blew us away. Our future is in good hands. Also, we miss school.

Friday the 13th and we’re closing up shop and wrapping a week with so many amazing projects crossing our desks: birth control 101 tools, mama health stories, incarceration lived experience mentorship maps, appalachian honey retraining tools, WV New Story conference plans, Cooper Hewitt design workshop curriculums, theater folks portraits, impact investing narratives, National Endowment for the Arts reviews, Salt. No doubt the work is challenging. At times we get caught inside and have trouble seeing the bigger picture we’re a part of. But no doubt- the work is good. #studiolife

Cheersing to our rock solid computer programmer SHAUN on this first day of his next rotation around the sun. MESH is lucky to have this gentle giant of a man who inspires us to reinvent ourselves over and over (he lived a former life as an accountant in nc before he decided to move to the mountain state and learn to code) - to love dogs like humans - to drink ALOT of coffee - and to be an even better version of ourselves, and our beards, everyday. #hbday🎂 #studiolife #meshdesign #codelove #beardgoals @shaundover

We loved seeing all of the @wvfree signs at the Enough! Rally for Women’s Lives this weekend. So honored we had the opportunity to design this new logo and rainbow gradient for this fearless org.
