Katelyn Watkins is one of our graphic designers. A recent graduate of the College of Design at NC State, Katelyn is passionate about all things design/creativity. She desires to leverage her passion and skillset to create stunning work that is life-giving, impactful, engaging, serves its purpose, and tells peoples’ stories well. Some of her favorite design areas include typography, branding, publication, user interfaces, photographic pieces, illustration, animation, and really anything that involves storytelling. Her design process almost always begins by hand, in her sketchbook, partnered with a Pinterest mood-board.
