About me

Hello. I am Karine Fortier, a freelance designer specialising in visual design and creative direction for digital, editorial and print. I am an ideas person with a background in Psychology, Philosophy and Visual Communication. My design practice focuses on designing something joyfully while paying great attention to cultural contexts and visual design components in order to capture people’s curiosity. My aim is to create a unique solution that suits your story and your audience, but also visually stands out. I see each project as an opportunity to progress and deepen my skillset as a visual communication designer. I have answered briefs for Computer Arts, Adidas, Harvey Nichols, Nike, Ford, Boden, The Folio Society. As a visual communication designer, my main focus is to create a unique solution that suits your story and your audience, but also visually stand out. ►● I am always interested in exploring new ideas and unusual projects, so if you’re interested in collaborations, commissions or just want to say hello then I’d love to hear from you.
