I’m Katie Jo and I am a dedicated, passionate, Creative seeking a design agency career and/or successful freelance opportunities.
I’ve been consuming design of all kinds since I was 17 years old when I received my very first Apple Powerbook with CS3 pre-installed. I studied Advertising, Public Relations, and English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, receiving my Bachelor of Journalism in Advertising. After a short stint at the family business in Kansas, I moved back to Nebraska to study Graphic Design at Metropolitan Community College, receiving my Associate of Arts in Graphic Communication and Design in record time.
My loves: my family & friends; my cat, Booboo, and dogs, Duke & Beans; hard cider & smooth whiskey; professional hairstyling products; self-improvement; drawing with charcoal; SoCal sunshine; eating healthy and lifting heavy; iced green tea; red dirt country music; the Oxford comma; and chips & salsa.
My dream job is to create, build, incorporate, and style brand identities for companies large and small that are making the world a better place.
