Kiri lives and breathes design and hopes that one day her work will bring her overseas in the Non-Profit sector. When she is not dreaming about design, much of her time is spent drinking good coffee, keeping up with all the latest YouTube sensations, and playing with her nieces.

Scaragami Branding

Branding system for a fictional boutique paper company entitled, Scaragami Paper Co. The logo mark was inspired by Egyptian scarab beetles and the polygonal forms of origami paper-folding. Scaragami Paper Co. imports fine papers from Egyptian paper artisans who specialize in papyrus paper blends, hence the reference to the beetle.

Virtuous Circle

The challenge was to create a brand for Virtuous Circle, a non-profit loan organization, that marriages professionalism and credibility with approachability in order to reach the student market. Our solution was founded upon the overlapping of colorful shapes where beauty is found in the coming together of colorful, diverse individuals that together paint a unified picture.

Gilbert Typeface Design

This typeface was inspired by and named after the Gilbert apartment building on Queen Anne Avenue. I was drawn to the unique spur on the ‘G’ and designed this typeface based on the building’s signage. Gilbert functions as a display typeface and is best featured in all-caps.
