The Krause Gateway Center

About This Project

Web designer for


Inspiration from design came largely from the foundations of architectural design. I Read the book A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams, the book allowed me to approach design in a different way. I made connections between architectural patterns and web design. The website design needed to match the feeling of being in the Krause Gateway Center, the feeling was bright and airy with a very modern touch.


The Krause Gateway Center, headquarters to the Krause Group of businesses, was designed by Renzo Piano, world-renowned architect and winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. It is located in downtown Des Moines, Iowa and opened its doors to employees in late 2018.


My goal with the design was to create a digital space inspired by the building.
