Howtoons History

In 2004, Howtoons was created by Saul Griffith, Joost Bonsen, and artist Nick Dragotta. They set out to redefine the how-to manual for kids. In 2008, I joined the team and added playful toy design to the projects. The goal was to create engaging content with hands-on DIY projects for kids to build.

Throughout the years, Howtoons been published through Harper Collins, Make magazine, Image Comics, and Scholastic Books.

Below are examples of our comics and projects. My roles include project design, creating supplemental educational material, book design, creative directing, project management, and advertising and marketing.
