Conspiracy Factory started as a collection of satirical conspiracy theories created by GD2 students scribbled on scraps of paper and hung in the Graphic Design Studio. Kara used this as inspiration for her final project. The project involved creating conspiracy theories that teeter on the line between believability and absurdity and designing symbols for them.

Kara Dawkins is a junior in the Graphic Design program. When she’s not designing, she spends her free time modeling tin-foil hats. She is a designer at Woodward & Willis and recently designed for Ann Arbor Virtual Pride 2020.
