KU Design Week came to a close with a wonderful Friday night gathering. I am especially proud of my friend, Claire Pedersen, for all her work to put together the entire event, and the many others who helped. I'm always a fan of a photo booth, enjoy!
This morning I attended another KU Design Week event, a paper engineering workshop led by Matthew Hawkins. After hearing his journey to becoming a freelance paper engineer, we each created a Jayhawk with a template Matthew provided. The end result was rather adorable, and I have a new appreciation for what goes into creating paper structures. It is always inspiring to hear how creative individuals find success doing what they love.
Tonight I was able to participate in KU Design Week's Drop Cap Battle. Led by the lovely Amber Goodvin, two people were each assigned the same letter and had to create competing drop caps in one hour. Below is the letter G I created, and I will soon receive a copy of a zine featuring every letterform created at the workshop!
