Makayla Lovrak

I am a designer whose beauty-seeking, analytical design practice gathers at the intersection of form
and function where expressions of creativity, problem solving, and thought focus heavily on type, it’s relationship to a page, and it’s ability to solicit reply.

By drawing attention to things that others may overlook and leading with my point of view, I try my best to depict empathy and compassion towards the people I design for.

I’m interested in the ethics of design, finding ways to better serve people through research to find more thoughtful solutions, and focusing on topics that
spark communal discourse.


Annex Zine (Fall 2019)

Part experiment, part serious play, this edition of
the PSUGD Annex Zine served to dive deep into the concepts of space in both literal and metaphorical ways. An extensive interview with graphic designer and space junkie, Duane King, fuels the entirety of the zine, exploring themes around ethics, technology, and
the space between us.

Roles: art direction, copyediting, interview transcription, project management, and production (page layout, printing, and binding).
