I used Din and Anonymous Pro fonts.

I was recently asked to set up a website that was managed under an existing WordPress Multi-site. The idea here is that a site is created via the single install of wordpress on domain-A.com but is accessed by visiting domain-B.com.
It’s actually pretty simple. I followed the tutorial from WPengine.com.
First you set the domain’s nameserver to the target server’s name servers, which typically look something like this:
define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );
Now we add the new domain to parked domains in Cpanel.
You might need to set up a wildcards if you are using subdomains… Peep the plugin install instructions for more info.
Then on the WordPress site setup your new site (or existing one).
You’ll be adding it to the Network > Settings > Domains area.
To find the site ID go to your site list and check the edit URL for the string ‘id=5′ (or what ever number it is)
That should do it. Now visit your domain and behold your site there yet still part of the same network.
I’ve been involved with this group of people who are writing a zine called Greater Brooklyn (greaterbk.net). I was back in February 2014 that we got started on the project, here is the first call for submissions poster I made.
Now just over a year later I’m wrapping up the cover for issue 4. I am really excited to see this project grow so I put a lot of effort into this dover design. I’m also passing the illustration over to my buddy Max Rose to breath some life into the setting I illustrated.
Some detail shots:
I’ve been pushing out a bunch of great websites recently! Here’s another I just finished up for Park Works in Canada.
It’s a simple display site for Play Work’s line of drop in place bridges. They needed a presence online to show off their work, describe some of the features, and display how easy installation is.
They had a good body of photographs so it was a breeze to put together the site. I decided to go with WordPress so that Park Works could do as much editing in house as possible.
I chose Theme Foundry’s Make to act as the theme for the site. There wasn’t enough custom work needed to warrant a child theme, though I normally would install the child theme just in case.
On the showcase page I used the built in Gallery function to create a grid of pictures that would pop up into the lightbox.
The Make theme has wonderful mobile support and the site works quite well on any device (not that I was able to test on that many, something I need to work into my process!).
I recently have begun a partnership with a dear friend Katie @fffalcon. She is a brilliant admin and designer, among other things. We picked up a little gig from my buddy Max Rose. He needed a portfolio site and fast! So Katie and I used it as a first mission to test out our potential partnership.
She turned me on to only selling myself in minimum of half day increments. No more billing one or two hours here and there, no if you want any of our time it will be at least a half day. Anyone who does freelance web work knows that even 15 minutes of work has upwards of an hour of prep time, between e-mail, server credentials, and just getting settled down to work you’ll burn countless minutes and hours that don’t get factored into your cost.
So we both gave Max a half day. Here’s the designs that Katie pumped out:
Desktop (full resolution)
Mobile (full resolution):
I then took that, plus some CSS she provided and converted it into the full site. I opted to use Jekyll to produce the flat site which is simply uploaded to the server via FTP. I plan to use GitHub.com to host the site soon and simply maintain it via git.
You can view the code for the site on GitHub.com.

I sold about 150 hours of my life to a friend of mine who does a lot of political work. They need a few hours from me every once in a while to put up little sites or make an e-mail template.
The most recent ask was for a small site to help get people to Chicago to help out a Mayoral candidate, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.
It’s called fight4chuy.com.
I was able to take it from nothing to done in under 2 hours with the following steps:
Let’s go through this step by step.
I went to visit Sudo Room the other day, which has recently moved to a new collectively run community center called Omni Commons. There is a cute little cafe, a library, and some other facilities. The building is an old event space which has a dance hall, stage, cafe, a disco dance room, and much more.
It was very inspiring to see and I hope to make it down to Oakland a bit more and participate in the future!
