kait2017

hi! i'm kaitlyn, a graphic designer + art director based in new york city.

My creative journey started around age 14, when I incessantly tore apart my battered copies of Seventeen and Teen Vogue to peruse the glossy images and flirty typography. I plastered these layouts to my bedroom walls for inspiration and dreamed of working in the magazine industry.

After graduating from Ohio University in 2014, I began my career as an editorial designer with work published in National Geographic, House Beautiful, Veranda and Elle Décor after several design internships. In 2015, I spearheaded the creation and design of the first 3 issues of Den of Geek magazine, and 30,000 copies of each issue were distributed at both New York and San Diego Comic Cons. And for the past 2 years, I've been a digital designer at beauty brand Moroccanoil. I'm currently a digital designer at BECCA Cosmetics, where I implement art direction + design for BECCA's website + e-commerce platforms.

When I'm not designing, I'm probably drinking copious amounts of cold brew, training for my next marathon, pouring over magazines for inspiration or baking sweet potato fries. I love hiking + the outdoors, but also exploring all that city life in NYC has to offer. I'm an avid concert-goer and I might also be the ultimate Jenny Lewis fan.

I'm a proud Ohio University alumna with a BS in Journalism and a BS in Visual Communication. I'm originally from Pittsburgh and now reside in Lower Manhattan.
