Hi. I'm George.

I've been designing online products and services that work since 1996.

My email address is glow at this domain, but without the "w".

I've had the pleasure of leading design on some fantastic web things like Flickr, Internet Archive, and myriad projects at Stamen. I've developed a specialisation in "visual databases" or helping people easily explore digital systems that contain millions of things.

Today I live in London, where I founded and run a small batch hardware CIC called Museum in a Box. We now sell Boxes on demand, and there's one on every continent except Antarctica. Our biggest flock of 75 Boxes is at the Royal Mint Museum in Wales, which offers them for any care home in the UK to borrow. I'm also very proud there's a Box in a permanent gallery in the Smithsonian Institution, one of our first clients.


 

I also have a consultancy called Good, Form & Spectacle, which is mainly focused on cultural heritage projects. Through G,F&S, I've worked with clients like The British Museum, Wikimedia Foundation, Wellcome Trust, MoMA, and Het Nieuwe Instituut.

Writing

  • I self-published a book called If Only The Grimms Had Known Alice which reshapes classic fairy tales to include female characters. Today the kids call it gender-swapping.
