Hey there!
My name is Kate and I'm
a recent design grad and communication enthusiast.


Kate Nelson is a recent graduate of Western Washington University, where she earned her BA in Graphic Design with a minor in User Experience Design.  Kate's accomplishments include an internship in communications and design at WSU's Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, a collaborative UX design project with WWU and Microsoft in fall 2014, and a national championship in NCAA rowing.  Because Kate didn't become focused on design until halfway through her higher education, she has a well rounded approach to design which draws from her strengths in copy-writing, UX, and content driven design.  

Kate has experience in print-making, responsive web design, mobile application development, typography, UX design, icon design, and brand identity development.  She is fluent in HTML and CSS and very comfortable using the Adobe Creative Suite.  

Although she now lives in Bellingham, Washington, Kate has strong roots in north Idaho where she was raised.  If she can tear herself away from the computer screen, Kate enjoys getting out of doors for a long run or white water rafting with her family.  
Kate likes cats, chard, and her dream job would involve working in a place with very large windows.
