Machine Magic

Hello! Machine Magic is the design & development practice of Jennie Robinson Faber and my favorite collaborators, handpicked for each project. I make things with the communities I'm part of, as well as nonprofits, co-ops, collectives, and artists.

Web Site + Application Development

We design and build fast, secure, accessible Web sites & applications that:

We specialize in migrating sites away from limiting corporate platforms like Squarespace, Wix and WordPress. Let's chat about something better!

We work with co-ops, collectives, collaboratives and non-profits to solve your unique digital workflow problems so you can make a greater impact with less effort.

Digital Workflow Consulting

Your group needs better processes and interfaces to capture and distribute the value of your collective work. Your quest for a single streamlined platform is probably not going well. Trust in your systems may be eroded, and people might not even be using the tools you're paying for.

Here's the truth: There's never been more options for connecting and using your data, sharing your story and engaging your community online. But identifying the right mix of bespoke and off-the-shelf tools to fit your budget and priorities is hard… and needs tending and care!


Own your process.

A custom tech stack designed in collaboration with your people, owned by your organization, can compound and sustain your work.

You make the magic – I'll make the machines work for you.
