Kathryn ClarkeSo, you’re wondering who’s behind all this? I’m Kat, an almost-Cardiff based graphic designer and Illustrator – who can often be found sporting a variety of paint and ink blobs, cooing over a collection of textured papers, or enthusing about the latest Social media craze.

Since my early years, I have a love of colour and print in particular – and I try to bring this into the sensible working world to while away my days. Doodling designs for teenage fan magazines, I then discovered desktop publishing, and drawn to the mix of drawings, photos and shapely fonts on screen.

A qualified Graphic Designer with work experience in Sales & Marketing, Social Media, and online advertising, I have been freelancing since 2008. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of marketing, innovation and branding, helping businesses target new customers and audiences, boost awareness and promote their brand. I also believe the variety in my work - and in my clients industries - boost my creativity and knowledge, keeps me on my toes, continues my learning.

My design experience covers applications such as corporate identity, sales literature, websites and online promotion, email newsletters, Facebook and Twitter for business. I work alone, or with teams, or remotely – Some of my first clients are located the other side of the World!

My illustration work has been used for Book covers, page design, television and social media. Sometimes integrating design work, sometimes working with a design team. I work traditionally with ‘wet’ materials (ink, paint, lots of splashes!) with a tidy-up and digital clever bits. Sometimes, my computer does as it’s told, first time around.

Enough about me – have a browse through my work portfolio instead. Proof is in the Pudding, so they say. Let me know what you think? Get in touch, send me an email and say hello back.
