Branding Page Layout Experience Design Screen Printing

Pronouns: She, her, hers

Kayla is a Portland native who found her love for design growing up near the city. Her work takes many forms; she is comfortable designing at the computer with some tea, or covered in paint screen-printing in her garage. Her favorite projects are community-focused, accessible, and people driven, because to her the soul of design work is humanity. Collaborating with a team of thoughtful designers is one of her favorite things. To her, design can be real life magic.

  • Portland State University’s College of the Arts promo piece designed with Sophie Van Der Merwe, Morgan Marshall, and Sean Schumacher. This piece is meant to capture the energy and the vibrancy within the school, and reflects that idea with dynamic photography and offset printing.

  • A rebrand for the Mystery Gallery, a rock and gifts shop in Milwaukie OR. New design aesthetic based on the gold rush era and vintage packaging from the 1890's, while keeping the funky hippy vibes of the existing space with a jewel tone color palette.

  • Wander is a van life magazine with sustainability and inclusivity in mind. The content focuses on promoting accessibility within the van life subculture, and is printed on 100% recycled paper to keep it responsibly disposable.

  • A thesis book project made up of profiles on 8 locally connected designers. Each designer discusses passion projects, and their process on making work within their own time away from their full time jobs. Designers also have an accompanying workshop for the reader to explore their own creativity through independently.
