Core Values

Design, Culture, Booklet
I was recently part of a small group which helped revamp Dropbox’s core values. An additional contribution I made after was to design this little booklet—printed on vellum. The booklet excluded mentioning the values themselves and instead focused on specific behaviors associated with each value.

30 Linear Drawings

Art, Drawing, Book
As a creative exercise, I committed to drawing every day for 30 days. My only rule was to draw in an iterative way. In other words, I would look at what I’d drawn the day before, and imagine what could come next. By doing this, a type of story unfolded day by day—only, I had no idea where it would go. As each new idea stemmed from the previous one, the process became one more of discovery than design. In some ways, it felt like each drawing designed themselves.

Ceramic Vessel

Design, Personal, Object
My wife and I chose Umbria for our wedding destination. And it’s an Italian wedding tradition to give Jordan almonds to the guests. Our guest count was small (50) so we decided to make something custom. To hold the almonds, I designed this simple vessel with an engraved serial number—our wedding date.

DBX Owens Handbook

Design, Work, Book
At Dropbox, our mission is to design a more enlightened way of working. So we’re always experimenting with new ways to work, internally.

At the end of 2017 we began working with architects Johnston Marklee to design our new HQ, (Owens). The group saw this project as an opportunity to live out our mission. We asked ourselves, “what could a more enlightened place of work look like?” 2 years later, we had much to share about what we learned.

To showcase our solutions in more detail, I designed a DBX Owens Design Handbook.
