Hello

I’m Kate, but my dad calls me KJ. He also threw me into art classes after the first kindergarten parent-teacher conference where he learned I wouldn’t stop drawing on the desks (which may still be an issue). With a focus in painting, the classes provided me with a foundation of skills and knowledge but more importantly filled me with dedication and passion for art that I still carry.

Today, my laptop is my main canvas. I find thrills in using my creativity to solve problems through design. I surround myself with art, creating fresh ideas whenever possible. Although currently based in Minneapolis, I am seeking to relocate to Los Angeles, California and land a job with an innovate culture.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work alongside savvy, creative-minded people who have broadened my understanding about tastefully incorporating design into the world around us. Through these experiences I’ve worked on a large diversified collection of clients including:

  • Subaru of America

  • Minnesota Twins 

  • Lorissa’s Kitchen

  • Meet Minneapolis

  • Red Baron Pizza

  • Stacy’s Pita Chips

  • Helzberg Diamonds

  • Sherwin Williams

  • Marvin Windows & Doors

  • Carmichael Lynch

  • Crystal B. Designs

  • U.S. Bank

  • Truvia

  • Thermos

  • Jack Links

  • Arla
