Dainty Pango Identity
Going to the nail salon is often an isolating experience without much interaction between guests. The challenge was to create a nail salon that establishes a sense of community among its patrons.
Dainty Pango is a nail salon with an eccentric personality that strives to bring a sense of community to its guests. Along with having their nails done, Dainty Pango offers tea to its patrons and a place to sit and enjoy it. By incorporating a café environment inside a nail salon, Dainty Pango breaks the isolation barrier.

Russian Constructivism started in the early 1900s and lasted until the 1940s. At its core, Constructivism is the rejection of autonomous art, or "art for the sake of art," and shifted thinking to allow design to serve as a political means. This project was created as if the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City were having a Constructivist exhibit. The book is something you might buy in the museum store, designed in the style of Russian Constructivism.
