Make:Hacks

Longtime readers of books in our Hacks series will have no doubt already noticed that the launch of Hackzine.com includes a redesign of our series logo:

Hackszine

Make:Hacks LogoI love the new look and its family resemblance to Make’s typography, but before we’d made this connection official, I’d already had fun mashing up these two great brands into my own fantasy book, using the following ready-to-hand materials:

  • Printer’s dummy book block (1): from a friend in Manufacturing

  • Cover flats for Hacks books (2): from a friend in Design
  • Make: stickers (2): from a friend in Sales/Marketing

I’d love to see more folks tinkering with our new logo, especially to associate it more closely to projects or areas that connect with our mission. A while back, I started a thread in the Make Flickr group for Make and Craft logo mashups, and I’ve just started one for Hacks in the Hacks group. If you’ve mashed up our logo, please let us see it by dropping it into the Hacks group and linking to it in the comments on that thread.
