MAKE BETTER STUFF (MBS) is run by designer and educator Xanthe Matychak. MBS began as a TEDx Talk about rapid prototyping in 2011 and evolved into a blog and workshop series in 2012. In 2015 and 2016 we were invited to The White House Office of Science and Technology, received several grants for developing physical products, and we’re teaching Make Better Stuff courses at university and the local makerspace.
Make Better Stuff design principles:
- Make with Responsible Materials
- Manufacture in Low Batches
- Make it Accessible
- Make it Easy to Upgrade and Repair
- Make Stuff that Strengthens Relationships
- Celebrate Nature
- Celebrate Culture
