Designer Specializing in
Logo & Brand Identity
for Small Businesses
For over ten years I've been a graphic designer, five of which I've specialized in Logo and Brand Identity Design. The reason I made the switch to focus specifically on branding is because I realized that a logo design is just not enough. Brand owners need more than a fancy logo to compete against big corporate budgets and shortening attention spans. I've also recognized the gap between what an owner envisions for their brand with what they're able to communicate, resulting in a design that misses the mark. I hope to help with both!

serving purpose driven, real-people powered businesses helps strengthen local business, thus affecting our direct families and communities, and impacting our world at large.

Design Options for Bigger Picture Planning
Hello! I'm Kat!
Living in beautiful, sunny San Diego, I've been designing professionally for over 10 years, but really, I've been designing since I was a kid in middle school yearbook, so almost my whole life. I'm a proud mama to one amazing kiddo named Bella, and two pups. We love to spend our days outdoors, hiking, at the beach, camping, and lately we've been bitten by the travel bug! Most recently we spent a whole month in Ireland, our favorite home away from home. Our next travel goal is to live and roam the country in an RV!
