A project created to present the Bauhaus movement manifesto as well as a modern take on the ideology. The iconic "B" is represented on the two covers of the book as well as in a 3D sculpture made of wood. To convey the importance of design in all mediums, I created a wooden spine to hold the book together. The modern take on Bauhaus, in the flip-side of the book, is IKEA's business model which is based on democratic design.
Updated personal branding for Kara Lynn Design. The identity includes hand drawn logos, packaging, artist bio cards and business cards, and a catalog.

This project was a book cover redesign where I chose two novels by Annie Hawes. I used scanned watercolors that I created for texture mixed with a script typeface. The crisp watercolors on the white background gave the covers a more modern feel. Because the books are set in Italy I incorporated photos I took abroad to bring in the travelers theme of the stories.
For this project I teamed up with a group of Drake University law students to design a presentation to address a local issue. Their presentation and report was on bike laws and ordinances in Des Moines. Our design highlights this theme and presents the information in a well-designed and organized manner.
