Ask Me Anything, I'm An Open Book
Hello there, my name is Katrina. I am an enthusiastic, creative soul with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. I create slick, successful designs and work in a variety of media. I’m the kind of gal that likes to work in a place that feels like family. I dedicate myself to projects, get things done fast and efficient but make sure my work doesn’t suffer lack of quality. I’m a hard worker; a go-getter and I like to do a lot of things at once. I’ve managed teams, motived masses, and kick ass under pressure when it’s crunch time. To me this isn't just a career it's a lifestyle.
My weapons of choice are InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. However, I am extremely practiced in all of the Adobe platforms. I know quite a bit about Microsoft, Excel and Power Point as well as photography and photo editing. I enjoy helping people grasp their ambitions and bring to life their ideas. My goal is to implement my skills and knowledge in different areas of design such as marketing, layout, print, and branding.
I have worked freelance for the past few years and although I’m a recent grad, I see myself as a forever student. When it comes to graphic design, the knowledge is never ending. It is my personal goal to learn it all. My most recent work experience has been at a gym in Homer Glen called Elite Fitness. I’ve spent the past six years learning some incredible aptitudes from them to prepare me for my next adventure.
On a more personal note: you would probably label me as an old soul. I call it being a grandma, although I don’t know how to knit (I’ve tried). Most of my free time is spent drawing, nose in a book, or Netflix dates with the hubby. I dance any chance I get, and if you were my snapchat friend you’d know I’m obsessed with my pitbull Justice. I’m a tenacious Italian and have more compassion then I think I can handle sometimes. I love children, animals, and I’m basically a huge nerd. I live for coffee. And well, that’s me.
