FROM MY CLIENTS

I loved how collaborative and easy-going the process was and am so happy with how the logo turned out! She designed the logo and incorporated a few edits all while helping plan her sister's bachelorette party and wedding. If that's not badass, I don't know what is!

FROM MY MENTORS

Kat is one of our TOP (tippity-top) students who absolutely LOVES what she is doing and finds a way to weave it into everything she does. Kat doesn't simply 'do' and assignment - she finds ways to go above and beyond. Her motivation really seems to stem from a passion for graphic design and to challenge herself at every turn.

I was asked to be a part of a competitive bookmaking course at Oregon State University that consisted of photographers and graphic designers. Our objective was to photograph specimens and design a book to represent the Natural History Collections. The book I designed with my team was selected to be published.

One of my favorite design milestones was seeing animations I had created on the jumbo screen at Beaver Athletics sports events and on various social media platforms.
