Sketchnotes of Nothing is Precious with Randy Hunt

This evening, I got a chance to listen to Randy Hunt (Creative Director of Etsy) share his vision of designing web products at an event put on by AIGA Austin. He has a lot to share from his experiences leading the design team at Etsy, and has a book called Product Design for the Web coming out that you should pre-order too!

CM Laser-Cut Swag

At Creative Market, we love to come up with creative new swag to give away. Recently, I was introduced to laser cutting by our friends in Austin, Texas at Make ATX. So, I decided to design 2 coasters and a keychain to be laser cut at their studio for Creative Market.

The first coaster is of the Creative Market logo plus some line embellishment, and the second coaster is called Design Love. The keychain is the Creative Market price tag icon. Enjoy!
