Made In Mass Logo


Proudly display that your website or product is made in Massachusetts with this slick-looking, copyright-free, (need I say, made in Massachusetts?) Made In Massachusetts badge.

I know it's been a trend lately to put where a website is made in the footer, especially for online startup companies, so I went looking to see if anyone had made a cool little 'Made in Massachusetts' badge and I didn't find one single attempt.

So I made my own.

This logo is published under a CC0 license and is completely free to use for any purpose whatsoever. You can download a zipped copy of the PSD file here.

I used a font called Metro Nova, designed by Toshi Omagari and based on the original Metro typeface designed by William Addison Dwiggins—in Massachusetts. I also did a version in Futura which is in the Photoshop file.

If you don't have access to Photoshop and need it in a particular size and color, drop me a line on Twitter (@nathanleegreen) or by email (nathanleegreen at gmail dot com) and I'll see what I can do.

Here's the version I use—120 pixels by 75 pixels, #555:

Sunrise & Sparrows Tee


Sunrise & Sparrows Tee


I proposed the flying sparrows idea in an email to the director of the team I was designing the shirt for and I explained the reason for the idea like this: 'The idea behind it, besides hopefully looking really cool, is that birds sing and fly because they can't help themselves — it's what God made them to do, and they seem to love doing both. And also, having a bunch of birds flying the same direction shows unity, movement, and purpose. And they would be flying upwards, showing they are attempting to get closer to heaven and God's glory.'

I used some sparrow vectors I found online and two fonts from Google's webfonts collection and just fiddled with all of it in Photoshop until I was happy with it.

Saves The Day Tee


Saves The Day Tee


saves-the-day-promo.jpg

There is a scene in Captain America: The First Avenger where Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, is transformed from a short, weak kid with a lot of heart into a superhero.

This shirt is based closely on the shirt he is wearing in that scene and his subsequent chase of the bad guy through New York. He wears it again at the end of the movie.

I liked that shirt so much I wanted to make my own—at that time I couldn't find it for sale online, but now you can find them everywhere—so I did and the image has sat waiting on my computer until now.

I had the brilliant idea to find a cause to support with the sale of these shirts (not because I'm such a great guy, but because people are more likely to buy stuff for a cause).

Just as I was looking for a cause, my friend Jake posted about one of his friends who's family is trying to raise money to continue battling a rare heart disease.

Once I read that, I decided trying to make money off of a design that's been sitting around on my computer for a year or two, when there are people who are hoping just to live to old age and do the things that the rest of us take for granted, was a little selfish.

So, I collected pre-orders in the hopes of both making some cool shirts and helping a guy who wants a heart that works like it's supposed to. In the end, I didn't get very many orders, but I did complete a survey on CustomInk.com that got me $100 off my order, so I was able to give about $120 to Coley's fund.

It was a good learning experience and I like the idea of maybe starting a tee shirt mailing list, doing a few shirt designs every year, and giving some of the money to a cause or a charity.

The Christmas Donkey Children's Book


The Christmas Donkey Children's Book


My late uncle, David N. Wilkins, wrote a story called The Donkey Speaks to read to his family at Christmas time every year. After he died, my aunt asked if I would illustrate the story so we could turn it into a children's book.

It was a much bigger project than I initially thought (aren't they all), but I eventually finished it a couple years ago. I am very proud of the work I did on this, especially since I had never done anything like it before.

I am also honored that I could be a part of furthering my uncle's great legacy through a very simple, but very charming story.

OCSPLORA: The Creative Revolutionary's Handbook


A magazine for Creative Revolutionaries, begun in 2009 and still going strong.

OCSPLORA has been a five year long project now (begun in May, 2009) to which I have dedicated an unseemly amount of time and energy.

The goal was and still is to share stories about creativity, adventure, and generosity, with the aim of encouraging and inspiring people who want those elements to be an essential part of their own lives.

I've never gone back and counted the number of contributors OCSPLORA has had over the years, but I know it's more than a dozen, and a handful of them have been repeat contributors. I am extremely grateful for all of them and the work they have each done for the magazine.

The site has never done that well in terms of pageviews and comments, but the stories on it are well-written, well-edited, and well-designed, and I am proud of that.

There have been three printed volumes and one digital-only volume. The design and layout of those four volumes took a lion's share of the time I've put into OCSPLORA.

I still have some printed copies of Volumes 02 and 03 laying around if anyone wants any, and you can download Volume 04 free on the site ('Volume 04: Out Of The Closet And Completely Free')
