Artist Statement

My goal for the Undergraduate Catalog cover design is to celebrate the words “Unstoppable Future” and the university’s 50th anniversary. Additionally, the objective is to design through a student lens and interpret what it is like to be a student during this milestone.

This design creates a narrative of time through use of an energy surge to highlight NKU’s growth as a university. This surge of energy weaves through and around the letterforms, as well as an image of NKU’s sundial, to enliven their meaning. This design represents the university’s encouragement for students to follow their own path - ultimately, gaining the momentum for an unstoppable future.

The catalog cover design and the online catalog banner graphic were designed by Maria under the art direction of Professor Julie Mader-Meersman as an independent project.
