[STUDIO] Publication

Editorial Design

Client: PSU MFA Program

Design Mentor: Briar Levit
Editor: Pat Boas

I worked closely with the lecture series curator and editor, Pat Boas, in order to create a simple, low-budget broadside to recap the PSU MFA program’s visiting artist lecture series. We created a format where each broadside could live on it’s own after each lecture, or as part of the all-inclusive piece at the end of the year. 

Each broadside had an artist interview on the front, and then the responses of the MFA students on the back. The design had to be exible enough to feature various kinds of responses: writing, illustration, photography, etc.

Hi, my name is Lea. 

I’m a brand designer, illustrator and art director working in Portland, OR. In my six years of design experience, I have worked for an arts publication, at a startup, in nimble studio environments, and for an advertising behemoth. Currently, I am thoughtfully shaping brands over at OMFGCO.
