About me
Hi I'm Kate, I'm an experienced freelance Graphic Designer. I have 2-3 years experience in graphics and visual design, specialising in print design, infographics and packaging design, however I am not limited to these areas. I have created illustrations for games, worked in branding, created logo's and even designed 3d game assets. I am always learning, I read everything I can and take every course possible to advance myself and keep pushing the limits on what I can achieve. I adore layout work and appreciate the art in this type of design. I came to graphics following a career change from Accounting, after a few years working for finance within big business I learnt that I made a terrible accountant, but my spreadsheets looked amazing and presenting information became a bit of a specialty. This has given me greater commercial awareness of the use of design within the retail sector, I appreciate there is a purpose to design beyond stunning aesthetics. Beyond work I have two young sons who keep me on my toes, and I enjoy sports of all kinds especially bouldering and hockey. I am a big Red Sox baseball fan and love baking. Thank you for your consideration, Have a great day, Kate.
