"Magazine design for my Digital Grid Class."

A talented graphic designer with an eye for photography, Laura’s versatility focuses on creating everything from fashion editorial campaigns to full company branding and advertising. Driven by a desire to emphasize artistry and its importance to the world, she found herself engulfed in art, which sparked her initial interest in Graphic Design.

Laura’s a self-taught designer learning from hands on experience. After landing a design position for a promotional items company, she knew she found her true passion. Her desire to grow as an artist prompted her to attend MIU, where she currently pursues classical education in Advertising and Graphic Arts.

"Digital books are at a rapid growth and currently make up 20 percent of all books sold to the general public in the US alone. As the digital market is expanding, the need for analogue books is becoming more redundant. The redesign of the prodigious novel Star Maker, by William Olaf Stapledon, first published in 1937, serves as an experiment on highlighting the qualities of a book’s physical existence, some of which cannot be accommodated by an e-book. 

This project is a comprehensive study of paper material, text layout and physical size. The book features various paper goods and weights along with a bookcase containing 16 A5-sized artworks representing a visual interpretation of each chapter, and a square-sized constellation map of the books content.” 

Daniel Siim is a Copenhagen-based designer and a BA graduate from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. His practice approach a wide scale of graphic design with a focus on printed matter, from small press to major publishing.
