The United States Of Design
In 2011, Fast Company brought its annual Masters of Design issue back to its roots: America. That year, we created a special-edition iPad app that showcased 50 carefully selected products, along with stories that celebrate the talented stateside designers and makers behind them. Among my favorite contributions: Stunning surfboards lovingly crafted in Maine and a modern twist on the classic Airstream trailer.
