A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hi, I’m Kim! I’m a Wisconsin-native that recently just spent almost four years living in sunny Florida. I sought out new opportunities there but am thrilled to be back in my old stomping ground. As they say, there’s really no place like home and there’s really no place that does cheese curds like Wisconsin! Turns out I am a purebred cheesehead!
As a young girl, my box of 64 crayons was one of my most prized possessions. In high school, I was introduced to Photoshop and immediately hooked. I later graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Multimedia Design. I love the spectrum of disciplines this degree covers and that it introduced me to not only print design but photography, video production and web development as well.
Today, I work with the majority of the Adobe Creative Suite – InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop most frequently. Additionally, I enjoy web design, photography, lettering and seeking out inspiration for my work.
Like many creatives, I feel best when productive. Each day is an opportunity for growth, learning and becoming the best version of myself, both as a designer and as a person. When people ask, I tell them that I am a designer but the reality is, I am much more. I am a creator, illustrator, developer, communicator and visual problem-solver. I believe that creativity and forward-thinking is of the utmost importance when it comes to design. I push myself to think outside of the box and see the bigger picture while still being attentive to the details.
Design isn’t my job. It’s my passion.
When I’m not behind the computer you can find me spending time with family and friends, reading a good book, playing volleyball or working on a Pinterest DIY project.
A few more things I’ve been loving lately are: outdoor Wisconsin activities, freelancing, country concerts & cowboy boots, Netflix, genuine friendships, and laughter.
