Coming Soon: Facebox

My friend Matt and I spent a few days earlier this week working on a new side project. It’s called Facebox and it’s almost ready. Starting today if you sign up for the launch at, we’ll give you a discount on the debut pricing too.


Technically Facebox will live on the Internet, but part of its appeal to us was that it was a project that would let us get up from our desks and get into the real world. In fact, it practically required us to walk all over New York City in order to get it done. We lucked out; the weather around here has been unseasonably, almost unconscionably pleasant for August.

So what is Facebox? I’m not going to explain too much about it now except to say that it’s built for designers. It’s also decidedly not huge or world-changing in any respect; it’s small and specific, focused on a relatively minor problem that nevertheless plagues designers everywhere. It’s one of those things that Matt and I have both found ourselves wanting many times, but we never found that anyone had bothered to build it, so we decided to do it ourselves. Anyway, you’ll find out when it launches, which should be in just a week or two. For now, sign up to hear about the launch.



  1. i’m guessing it’s a collection stock avatars (that don’t really look “stock”) to help designers while working on their next social project.

    do i get a cookie? 😉

  2. Heh, well I’m not going to say whether you’re right or wrong, and I can’t give you a cookie, but I can give you 10% off if you sign up for the launch notification. 🙂

  3. It’s literally a box of faces. They walked all over town, ripping the faces off of hoboes. Then they put them in a box. You monsters.

  4. @Phil Ken

    I read that, at first, as “It’s literally a box of feces.” I gots to get my glasses checked.. 🙂

Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
