I design things.


Mark Uraine

I’m based in Southern California, but was reared in the mountains of Oregon, so I’ve got stories to tell. With almost all 50 states, and over 17 countries under my belt, my variety of experience keeps me fresh. I’ve been making mistakes since 1976 and find it’s still the best way to reach new ground.

I like to think about design because design is about thinking.



Designer at Automattic

I’m a designer at Automattic striving to be an impactful contributor to Core and a frequent problem solver on WordPress.org. I’ll never stop learning and I’ll never stop challenging the status quo. I design. I communicate. I get things done.
