Graphic Designer, Illustrator

Meet Kate

I began developing my passion for design at an early age. When I was 7, I began scrapbooking and fell in love with laying the different photos and textures out on the page. I loved the puzzle of figuring out how the different elements related to one another.

In 2009, I moved from bitter cold Upstate New York to steamy Nashville, TN to study Design Communications at Belmont University. I graduated with my BFA in 2012.

I'm often asked what makes me "uncommon". My client relationships are important to me, and I do what I do because I genuinely want to see my clients succeed. I believe design can be a powerful tool, and it is my goal to find out what my clients' specific needs are, and create something that we can both be proud of.

Do you have a project you need help with? Contact me, and I would love to talk to you!
