My passion for advertising and graphic design began long before I stepped onto Butler’s campus. As a young girl, I would pour over magazines, cutting out my favorite ads and placing them in a 3-ring binder. I had an appreciation for simple, timeless and bold designs, which has continued to grow to this day. Several 3-ring binders later, equipped with the knowledge and experience I have gained through a variety of positions, and a laptop full of freelance projects and ideas, creating innovative designs and strategies has become my strong-suit.
My college degree was strengthened through my role as a Division I student-athlete, numerous internships, and my study abroad coursework at Florence’s Accademia Italiana School of Art, Moda and Design. In addition to this, I have launched my own jewelry company, Katherine Reed Jewelry, while working as a freelance graphic designer for several companies, organizations, and foundations. These opportunities and abilities set me apart from my peers.
I am confident that my past experiences as a graphic designer, company owner, account manager, and marketing coordinator, combined with my strong work ethic and competitive drive, make me an ideal addition to your company.
