Formed in 2011 and redesigned with the launch of Issue 9 in 2014, Makeshift is a field guide to hidden creativity. From homemade aircrafts in Nigeria to drug smugglers in Mexico, the quarterly magazine uncovers creative solutions from the economic fringe. Makeshift is part of a new breed of magazines passionate about their content, form, and community.

The Powering Up Issue, was structured in three chapters with individualized icons: “Making it,” “Moving it” and “Using it.” The issue featured fuel smugglers in Venezuela, power line pirates in the United States or amulet worshippers in Thailand among others.
