Kate is passionate about using beautiful design to achieve effective communication. She’s worked with entrepreneurs, small businesses, and corporations in many different industries as a freelancer and as an employee.
She completed her formal training at Columbia College Chicago, and in her senior year was the Graphic Designer for the winning team of the Red Bull “Get it on Record” contest.
Professionally she gained a lot of industry experience doing design and pre-press work for a custom label printer before taking a position with a large health and fitness equipment company. In those jobs and through freelance work, Kate has done many different projects including: touchscreen user interface, branded print materials, logos, websites, brochures, trade show banners, and product labels.
She left traditional full-time employment in order to focus on caring for her four boys, taking on freelance projects as she was able. Now that her children are a little older, she is back to “full-time” work as a freelance designer.
