At the Lake was a collaborative project with Shari Buma, who is both an enthusiast and lifelong student of the Great Lakes. The book, created for young readers aged 4-8 years, highlighted common features in and around Lake Michigan, including sturgeon, Petoskey stones, lighthouses and more. 

The color palette for the book featured hues inspired by the Great Lakes; a soft family of colors that still retained some saturation. By using large, colorful images and minimal text, we hoped the information would appeal to children under 8. To engage the curiosity of slightly older readers, we also added a "Did you know?" section, giving more details on each element presented in the book.
