︎︎︎ Hello



I’m Makayla.

A thoughtful designer. Carefully seeking beauty through her analytical practice that trusts in typography’s ability to tell a story and solicit replies. Drawing attention to content that others may overlook. Leading with intention and her point of view from a place of deep understanding.

I like being a peacemaker, pursuing restorative rest, and curating spaces to feel comforting and cathartic.

I’m currently a full-time Junior Designer at Instrument on a team dedicated to building projects for Google.
