Communications, Marketing & Graphic Design
Hi, I’m Kate!
I’m a creative and innovative professional with more than 10 years of experience in writing, marketing communications, social media management, and graphic design and publication layout.
I have a strong background in developing and implementing comprehensive marketing communications and social media strategies for brands of all sizes that result in improved brand awareness and recognition, and an increase in followers.
Additionally, I have more than seven years of experience in graphic design and publication layout. I’m a detail-oriented and organized designer with experience working with high-profile, international clients to create reports, newsletters, posters, brochures, flyers, social media and Pinterest graphics, and more, that are aesthetically pleasing, easy to read, and professional.
I have a Bachelor of Arts (honours) degree in Sociology and Mass Communications from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, a graduate certificate in Public Relations from Langara College, Vancouver, Canada, and a Master of Arts in Corporate Communications, Marketing and Public Relations from the Leeds University Business School, the University of Leeds, UK (expected 2020). I have also completed courses in graphic design at Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada; and, in Creative Travel Writing offered through Ryerson University’s G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education.
Born and raised in Canada, I live in Leeds, UK, after stops in both Madrid, Spain and Stockholm, Sweden.
When I’m not busy creating, I can be found travelling Europe, reading, writing lists, and knitting fair isle hats.
