DesignPrep: Makerbot Workshops


Cooper-Hewitt is launching a series of FREE workshops for NYC teens on building, programming, and prototyping with the Makerbot 3D printer. Participants will learn how to assemble, program, and print their designs on the Makerbot 3-D printer. They'll learn about hardware, software, and 3D modeling software like Google Sketchup and Blender. This is a huge opportunity for kids to geek out on the cutting edge of technology and bond with the Makerbot developers--the hippest, funnest nerds in the country.

Recent Acquisitions: Digital Typography


When it came to selecting the font for the introductory panel, since this was an installation about typography, I wanted to use a typeface that was distinctive from the Cooper-Hewitt house font which is News Gothic.
