︎︎︎ Hello



I’m Makayla.

Bringing order to chaos and making beauty from ashes.

A thoughtful designer who cares in bounty, I seek beauty through my analytical practice that trusts in typography’s ability to tell a story and solicit replies. I draw attention to content that others may overlook and lead with my point of view, trying my best to be intentional from a place of deep understanding. 

I am eager to make honest, meaningful work, build lasting relationships, and partner with non-profits, cultural institutions (i.e. museums), or a design agency working on editorial design, type, art direction, UI/UX, and/or visual identity systems.

In the meantime, I am pursuing rest.
