My name is Zachary and I'm a new media artist from Philadelphia.

I create engaging content... websites, videos, games, apps, that sort of thing. I work at a University of Pennsylvania think-tank and I'm responsible for projects such as the political literacy site FlackCheck.org and the teaching tool Civics Renewal Network. My work has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, PBS, MTV, USA Today, and tons of other places. I use this website as a process blog. Click here to view my portfolio.

Year One

These are concepts for invites to my daughter’s first birthday party. I thought it would be cool to visualize how she must see adults, since her biggest priority seems to be doing big people stuff like grabbing cellphones and putting her hands in cups of coffee. My partner’s reaction to the concept was “Why can’t you just make a normal invitation? Just once.”

Print-Friendly Emoji

I’m working on a couple print products that use emoji, but apparently no one has made good one color or two color emoji? So I’ve been making some. Might open source them when I’m done (which can be tricky since University of Pennsylvania technically owns everything I create).
