Pixel Planet Today

Pixel Planet Today is a passion-fueled 'Design 365' project I decided to undertake in July 2019. The daily pixel designs highlight facts about the current state of the environment, from biodiversity and invasive species to climate change and pollution. I'm combining my love for design with my passion for the environment and hoping on inspiring others to take action and help our planet.

Under­graduate Research

Between January 2016 and May of 2017 I combined two of my passions into one Undergraduate Research project. I am really passionate about the Earth and going green, and I wanted to use my skills in Web Design to help bring attention to the state of the environment. My study focused on the question "Why do some college students recycle, and others don't?" I surveyed UNK students, and with the results I created an interactive website with the goal of reaching the audience that needed it: college students. For this project, I coded all of the HTML and CSS, created all of the graphics, and coded most of the JavaScript.

Go For Launch

Go for Launch was a weekend-long workshop that brought startup business ideas to reality. As a student worker in the Center for Entrepreneurship and Rural Development office at UNK, I designed the majority of the promotional materials for the event, including the illustrations for postcards, flyers, and banners for email newsletters. The workshop had a limited 20 spots for attendees, and flyers were spread throughout the Kearney community and around the UNK campus.

Start Up Week

Central Nebraska Startup Week was an entire week of events dedicated to entrepreneurship throughout the region. Events were held in Kearney, Grand Island, and Hastings Nebraska, with events for people of all ages. As a student worker in the Center for Entrepreneurship and Rural Development office at UNK, I created the Nebraska-themed banner using the pre-existing Techstars style guide.
