Kat Simpson



Kat moved to the Pacific Northwest from the East Coast, lured here by the great music scene and endless opportunity for outdoor adventures. She loves the power packaging has to elicit deeper emotions in people, with experience in visual brand development, campaign concept development, responsive website design and hand watercolor & ink illustrations. Past clients include Shea Moisture, Clinique, The Limited, Isopure, Aeropostale, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
