This week, inspired by upcoming International Women's Day (March 8th), we'd like to introduce Jordan Graves. Living in a world of design, you can tell Jordan has been inspired by motion graphics and digital influences, and all kinds of colors. We think the combo is pretty great.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? I design a little bit of everything: jewelry, textiles, motion graphics, really anything as long as it’s digital. I graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with my BFA in Motion Media Design in 2012 and have continued to live in Savannah, GA since graduating.
The Sochi Olympics may be over, but we are celebrating some monsters over here! A big thanks to everyone who participated in our #monsterlympics contest, and thank you to Monstermatic for making such a fun app. We received lots of great entries, but it all came down to the gold, silver and bronze.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? I’m Rob Mack, aka DaddyMack, I live in Sydney Australia and have been lucky enough to have worked as an artist/designer in a wide variety of media for over 25 years now. I started painting murals and signage for local businesses and at one stage ran my own 500m2 warehouse producing props and artwork for festivals and theatre. My work is now largely digital with a focus on 3D, 3D printing, and digital clay technology.
This week, we highlight designer Rose Thun, a tech girl after our own hearts, her shop is full of "infinite love" designs, as well as some great geometric but useful products we can't help but love.

This week we highlight a veteran of Shapeways, Vincent Greco. He's been with us since 2008 and has a shop full of possibilities, materials, and imagination that we hope will inspire old and new members alike.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? My name is Vincent Greco, known here as Magic. I am located at Vincennes a city touching Paris in France. I have a background of software engineering and I am currently working in the video game industry. I am one of the oldest Shapeways community members (since August 2008). 3D-printing is more than a passion for me: it’s an addiction!
This weeks Designer Spotlight focuses on Zach Tsiakalis-Brown, a young Shapie from the northwest, with a shop full of imaginative, original prints that remind us how fun 3D printing really can be.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? My name is Zach, and I am (possibly) the youngest Shapie ever. I am 13 years old and live in Seattle, Washington, where I am in eighth grade. I have experience in 3D modeling, basic game design, digital art, and movie making.
This weeks Designer Spotlight focuses on Iza Grun, the jewelry artist with wanderlust and a serious eye for capturing natural forms and translating them into wearable art.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? Hi, I'm Iza and half a year ago I founded IZ4 fine art jewellery. Right after graduating as an architect in Bucharest, I started working in Brussels, Antwerp, and then in Ghent, for 4 years - as a designer for the Wim Delvoye studio. Currently based in Berlin, I plan a future move to a hot sunny place somewhere in South Asia. I love the fact that Shapeways makes it possible for people like me to live and work wherever they choose, while being able to run their business and make their ideas come to life.
Hard to believe we’re about halfway through January! So, how are those are #3DP2014 Resolutions coming along? If you still haven’t tried to design anything, it’s okay, we forgive you. But now’s a great time to step up your 3D print game. And with TinkerCAD, it couldn’t be easier.
