I worked as a graphic designer for Matzke Media House LLC for a year.

I created original illustrations, headers, icons, logos, maps, and more for their magazine and online marketplace, Make It Minnesota.

I was the principle designer for Make It Minnesota's Fall 2014, Spring 2015, and Summer 2015 issues. I designed layout, chose fonts and color schemes, worked with copy, created illustrations, and wrote several articles.

I also updated the Matzke Media House LLC logo. They asked for a design that communicates "homegrown media," "professional," "small town America," and "hardworking," with crisp lines and strong fonts.

They have since rebranded, but you can view samples of my work below.
