When I first moved to Wisconsin in 1996, I wasn't prepared for the harsh winters that would follow. That first year I must have slipped and fallen at least 5 times. It only took me about three years to figure it out. Check out this set of instructions in case you find yourself dealing with icy conditions. Instructions and "how-to" illustrations are a Tablet specialty. Please call or email if you need a process illustrated. [Update] Due to popular demand, posters of this image are now available for sale. 11"x17" posters on cover weight paper are now available for $10 each or $90 for 10 posters. If you are responsible for safety related communications at your business, please call or email to place an order or click here to order posters online.
Minneapolis clean energy advocates, Fresh Energy asked Tablet to contribute to their quarterly newsletter. We created an infographic that depicts the U.S. energy system in terms of what is created, what is used, and what is wasted. Evidently, a lot of energy is wasted and there is room for major improvement in efficiencies. This infographic is the first fruit of what I hope will be a long and happy relationship between Tablet and Fresh Energy. Look for more collaborations between us in the future.

Tablet was recently included in How To Land A Jumbo Jet: A Visual Exploration of Travel Facts, Figures and Ephemera. It's a nice little book of travel-related infographics edited by Nigel Holmes and put out by Lonely Planet. At the time, I was interested in Lewis and Clark and their journey to discover the northwest passage. My entry details some of the hardships of that ordeal and contrasts those hardships with some of today's "first-world" problems. Click here to see the graphic.
Pitch Interactive hired Tablet to create artwork and infographics for an interactive web module for their client, GE. The idea was to demonstrate the benefits of GE's new combined cycle power plant offering in a way that the lay-person could understand and appreciate. I did all of the artwork and infographics here (accept the icons) and Pitch art directed, created the UI, and did the programming. Click here to see some screen shots.

Recently, I was contacted to create a set of instructions for an existing laminating machine. Turns out, the instructions that were originally created were insufficient and people were misloading the machine and causing it to jam. These illustrations were made into a sticker that attached to the paper loading tray. Click here to see the images.
Loblaw is a company that owns several chains of very popular grocery stores in Canada.

Recently, Tablet was asked by Crunch Brand Communications in Charlestown, MA to help with an infographic for Aceso.
