Hi, I’m Katie. I'm a graphic designer and I'm very happy to make for a living. I value creative practice, good listening, resourcefulness, integrity, creative strategy, third tries, solid grid systems, and collaboration. I seek work that provides diverse design projects involving strategic thinking—preferably with a tight, cross-functional team of folks who enjoy sharing ideas.

Armed with 6+ years experience and primarily in-house design work, I'm ruthlessly proactive and understand that maintaining brand integrity is critical. I believe that practical, clear brand immersion allows for solid collaboration and implementation of creative strategy. One of my favorite parts of the design process is ideation and beginning collaboration. Honing in on what is going to solve the problem and communicate clearly is paramount to good design.

When I'm not working you can find me wandering art spaces, prowling at rock shows, taking on the high score on Addams Family pinball, reading comics, or at home cross stitching and being snarky to my cat.
