Lyndsay Wasko (she/her) ♓︎

Quick with a sketchbook and conceptual thinking, Lyndsay has crafted a multidisciplinary portfolio over the last decade that demonstrates her ability to wear many hats: from award-winning brand, web, and packaging design to multi-channel ad campaigns and more illustrative work such as video game concept art, children's book illustration, and museum installations.
Lyndsay’s illustrative work explores themes of childlike discovery and thoughtful observation of nature and her intention is to inspire greater appreciation and respect for the natural world we all share. As part of this mandate, she has worked closely with the Wilder Institute and Parks Canada to promote wildlife and habitat conservation. A Calgary-based creative, Lyndsay graduated with a Bachelor of Communication Design from the Alberta University of the Arts and is currently pursuing a Masters of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta. Outside of academic pursuits, she runs Mice Type, a small creative studio, and serves as board member at The New Gallery.
