Design Mecca at MICA
Sample: Layout for a fictional Architectural digest, assigned for InDesign class.
Moving back to my home town after 7 years abroad was a big deal for me. I had to reacquaint myself with the city and the streets – so much has changed here – but the historical maps are beautiful all on their own. This map by J. Mitchell was published in 1867, in the middle of the Civil War. I was fascinated by the neat and tidy district boundaries – the total opposite of gerrymandered districts – and decided to use this piece as the basis for the Final project in InDesign.
East Coaster Prep
I hated prep school but still appreciate a more conservative, preppy wardrobe. Bright pastels make me happy, and I love to decorate my home with them. The Final project required that we come up with 5 cards, but I wanted to make laminated coasters. I selected the most colorful neighborhoods for my graphics and included important historical facts on the back. My classes at MICA were great but this project was the first time in my life I could see myself actually making something I could hold in my hands.
