Kathleen Corgan

With an aesthetic toolkit that includes a BFA in painting, a career in filmmaking, and a timely reboot into a fast-growing graphic design career, Kath has enjoyed working on all manner of multi-disciplinary projects, including identity and logo design, corporate and non-profit communications, editorial layout, and icon and pattern-making. When she’s not looking for a beautiful typeface or a beguiling palette, she’s enjoying the outdoors with her family or taking her Ducati 999 for a spin.
