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.


Margin (WIP)

Margin is an extension of my senior thesis exploring rest as a needed form of regenerative self maintenance in a world of pathological busyness. It is an application for someone who regularly overfills their schedule with work so that it’s easier to create space in their lives for rest and see it as productive. Through stages of informed research, I am synthesizing my findings in order to better serve people’s needs through thoughtful UI/UX.

Expected Completion: May 2020            Research, UI/UX
