Marie was a much loved young woman who tragically died in a motorcycle accident when she was 29. She had applied to the Science Illustration program at Cal State Monterey Bay, but received the acceptance letter after her death. While tragic and much too soon, her passing was the spark for a friend to start a wonderful non-profit to provide other students with art scholarships. It was named after some of the animal parts she studied and drew, and the logo was modeled after one of her drawings.

The non-profit needed a website that was simple, clean, and reflected the kinds of things Marie loved to make art about. I kept text to a minimum, made sure to include her drawings on every page, and pulled bright pops of colors from the color palette of her work. The much loved winged nautilus was to be front and center.

The scholarship has been thriving and has already raised a few thousand dollars in the first month. Between an inviting website and an adorable mascot, they should have no problem reaching their goals and supporting art students while honoring their friend, Marie.
