Threading a design dichotomy

Through much personal reflection, I found that a gap formed in my design career when it related to illustration and graphic design. While similar subjects, they have been taught to me separately and in this project I explored this dichotomy and threaded it closed by working illustrations into a variety of different designs. I also hove a fondness for houseplants, and have been illustrating them for several years. I made them a port of this project by creating a plant care journal with coloring pages, a desk calendar, a sticker, and a plant tag. This variety of materials helped me use illustrations in multiple formats while also growing my knowledge of editorial design and professional printing techniques.

Abstract/Description: Through much personal reflection, I found that a gap formed in my design career when it related to illustration and graphic design. While similar subjects, they have been taught to me separately and in this project I explored this dichotomy and threaded it closed by working illustrations into a variety of different designs. I also hove a fondness for houseplants, and have been illustrating them for several years. I made them a port of this project by creating a plant care journal with coloring pages, a desk calendar, a sticker, and a plant tag. This variety of materials helped me use illustrations in multiple formats while also growing my knowledge of editorial design and professional printing techniques.
