About


I'm Kate, a graphic designer and web developer. I thoroughly enjoy things of quality, things with stories, and I believe in things that stand the test of time, not those that merely subscribe to the latest trend. I prioritize functionality without sacrificing aesthetics and character. We live in an ever-changing world where efficiency is of utmost importance; I strive to make my designs beautiful, timely, and effective, whether they be for print, web, or anything else. Feel free to contact me with questions or job inquiries.
