Nicole Lahy

Nicole Lahy is a graphic designer and artist in Madison, Wisconsin, who graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design just last year. Her very cool senior thesis caught my eye...

The project was a portion of her senior exhibition, so Nicole chose a large scale design that would work well in a gallery-like setting and appeal to all ages.

She spent a thousand hours on research, sketching, experimenting, screen-printing, cutting, and gluing, which I don't doubt for a moment.

The result was a playful, educational installation about birds (because Nicole loves them) and courtship (because it's a rare bird who isn't interested in that!)

Recorded bird calls were played in the background, along with carefully selected songs... "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye, "Come Fly With Me" by Frank Sinatra, "Make Love" by Daft Punk, and "At Last" by Etta James.


Visit Nicole's website to see more examples of her work, like this nifty paper illustration that was part of a series she made during an internship...


some Lady Gaga song illustrations...


a cardstock diorama of a still shot from her favorite movie, Amelie...


and some more fab lettering.
