Dear Kayla: SAIC Undergraduate Thesis Show

  • My sister is about to enter college, and wants to go into the design field.  Looking back, there are so many things I wish I would've known about design when I was her age.  For my undergraduate thesis showpiece, I created a typographic installation, a "designer's library" of sorts, based word-for-word on an email I had written to her previously.  Putting a personal conversation into a public space, I invite the viewer to read the information as my sister, with pieces to interact with, including cards to take, magazines to read, and QR codes leading to design websites.
  • All text is originally, word-for-word, from an email written to my sister.  I sketched out design, then cut the text in vinyl, combined with some hand drawn type.
