Being Graphic (Print Design; Art Direction)

“PSUGD is an exciting place to be. It is where students come to learn, feel known and supported, and part of not just a nationally recognized design program, but something bigger—a community of makers that are there for one another. PSUGD was in need of a holistic piece of print that would uphold the program and last for years to come and Being Graphic made sure that happened.
    Being Graphic is a 3-color offset-printed newspaper publication that is designed to communicate what’s happening in Portland State University’s graphic design (PSUGD) program.”

— Makayla Lovrak


Although I joined this project mid-development, the supremely talented group of designers already working on Being Graphic immediately made me feel at home.
    Under the direction of Makayla Lovrakand with the support of the Being Graphic design team, I worked to continue developing portions of the design system which undergird the entire publication. This meant considering the section’s title pages, runners, type styles, and the cover!
