Hello, world. My name is Kaitlyn, and I’m an art director pursuing optical poetry.

I often describe my creative career as constant baptisms by fire (affectionately).

My first role at AKQA was in the human resources department where I honed my downy soft skills for a year and a half before transferring to creative — where I have since become a conceptual visual-designing-art-directing creative hybrid. The beauty of career-switching at an advertising agency means new clients, new software, new workflows, new ideas, new everything is the norm. It's an environment that has made me conceptually nimble and adaptable. 

I bring a dedication to craft and unbounded curiosity to every project I touch. And given my experience in graphic design, digital design, print, illustration, branding, and UI, I can both concept and produce a creative vision. 

↳ Happy to chat freelance opportunities.
