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.
