The sign of the Maker

A few years ago during a period between jobs I decided to make a sign for my house.
This sign I chose to use for my website logo.

The sign attempts to represent the work I do, both in the materials used and its construction. The letters of 'Maker' are wood, acrylic, copper, printed circuit board and steel, all materials I regularly work with.


I had the fortune to have parents that allowed me to take things apart when I was small even though I was incapable of putting them back together. This eventually paid off and by my early teens I could take apart and re-assemble almost anything successfully.
This was a good foundation for a life as a maker as the understanding of materials and methods employed working with them is fundamental.
