Hey! I'm Katie

My love for graphic design took root in high school when I began creating custom t-shirts for my classmates and selling them for pocket money. Following high school, I attended Portland State University and obtained my Bachelor of Science in psychology. However, it was that spark from high school t-shirt sales that drove me to pursue higher education at The Art Institute of Portland in the field of graphic design. Today, I draw on both backgrounds; one of creativity and technical knowhow and the other rooted in the human condition. My marketing and designs are intuitive and are created in the way people think.

Part of my design process is to understand my clients target audience, brand mission and goals. This allows me to connect and create designs that are communicated through the use of color, fonts, shapes and structures. I apply each of these elements by playing into the psychology of viewers and inferring the characteristics of the brand to the target audience.

I love meeting new people and working with my clients. When I’m not designing you can find me hiking in the foothills around my home of Boise, ID, enjoying coffee at one of the local cafés or having a slice of pizza in the North End.
