I make things for and on the Internet. I'm into ampersands.

Margot Harrington runs design studio & blog Pitch Design Union, launched in 2008. Captivated by all forms of making and doing, Margot’s collaborations run a gamut of media from letterpress to CSS, with mostly small businesses, community-driven adventurers, artists and educators. Her friends include the people of Chicago, antique books, new recipes, bike rides and all things vintage.
