Libby Newcomer

I am graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design and minors in Photography and Business & Entrepreneurship.

I am interested in the balance between design for the digital experience and the tangible experience. I enjoy bookmaking and the physical processes of film photography, as well as solving the puzzles of website and app design. I am passionate about caring for the earth and promoting sustainability through design as well as my daily activities. Find me climbing, cooking, and yoga-ing in my free time.

Nearly Normal's Rebrand

A (fake) rebrand of a quirky vegetarian restaurant that is local to Corvallis, Oregon. Nearly Normal’s has been a staple in the Corvallis community for over 30 years. They are well known among local veggie lovers, but current branding is almost nonexistant and does not match the quality of the products. My rebrand provides Nearly Normal’s with some much needed consistency while still evoking the whimsical nature that is evident in their food and dining experience. The signature mark is an onion that takes on the character of a crystal ball, creating a feeling of intrigue and wonder.

Check out my new brand guidelines here. And if you’re ever in Corvallis, get the Nearly Nasty burrito.

MU Lanes & Games

MU Lanes & Games Rebrand

A complete rebrand of the bowling alley in the Memorial Union at Oregon State. Previously known as the MU Basement, the space was in need of a refresh. The end goal of this project was to draw more attention to the space that features bowling and other activities, and redo the outdated interiors. The final project included a new name and brand system, digital and print promotion across campus for the grand reopening and many updated deliverables. The revamped physical space included new paint, vinyl wall decals of our designs, and an installation of painted pool cues and bowling pins in a lounge area.

This project was done in collaboration with Lona Tappouni and Julia Kenyon.

The Open Road Cover

The Open Road

Spring break of my junior year was spent with 17 of my classmates and one fearless instructor in two vans driving around the backroads of the American West. We spent the week traveling through five states, documenting our experiences and findings through photography. And we only got stuck in the mud in the middle of nowhere once. My final project was a pair of handbound books of my own digital photos, polaroids, and journal entries, with a new section for each day of the trip. The books are 96 pages bound in a bookcloth that reflects the color of the landscapes we traveled through. They are finished with a screenprinted cover that traces our route and a title on the spine.
