Portfolio

I have worked in several different industries during my design career including Toys, Computers and Paper crafting. Here are a few of my favorite designs.

ILLUSTRATION:
These include stamps that I have designed as well as preliminary pencil sketches. I’ve also had my illustrations published in Sports Afield magazine.

LOGO DESIGN:
I enjoy the clean, thoughtful discipline of logo design. These are just a few samples.

PACKAGING:
I have designed more packaging than anything else in my professional career. I have designed for products as varied as Toys to Solid Surfaces and craft designers as diverse as Tim Holtz and Stephanie Barnard.

COLLATERAL:
I have a degree in Graphic Design which means I often design printed collateral. I’ve had the opportunity to concept and design advertising, books, magazines, catalogs and brochures for companies such as Compaq, Apple and Ellison/Sizzix.Lynda_Kanase_Collateral_portfolio

PRODUCT DESIGN: Paper Crafting Collections
I have been a crafter all of my life so I base my die designs on what I would want to use. I enjoy using my imagination when designing my dies and especially love seeing how talented crafters think of different ways to use my designs.

PRODUCT DESIGN: Quilting
I have a soft spot for quilting. I enjoy working with fabric although not a very accomplished quilter. I do, however, enjoy seeing what the talented quilters and sewers make with my designs. The monsters on the growth chart below are made from a single die that has so many options. Even my reindeer design has the option of playing with the placement of the antlers to add variety.

PRODUCT DESIGN: Misc.
I like designing product that can be used in a variety of ways. Some of my more versatile designs includes a table tent for parties, a pocket page booklet, a candy-shaped party favor box and home decor items.
