Katie Upson - Designer
KATIE UPSON

About

Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.

 

Originally I studied illustration at Lincoln University. Drawing and art is always where my heart will lie. This creative start has enabled me to explore a wide variety of projects and career roles. I began by working as a freelance illustrator, being part of the craft fair circuit. While doing this I also held several positions as a graphic designer, working across digital and print.

Currently I work as a web and email designer for Interflora, working across multiple brands and in a variety of mediums.

While my design career is an important part of my life, bringing me a sense creative satisfaction, everyone needs another outlet to relax. I have always loved animals and my current furry best friend Simba has played an important part in keeping my routine varied and healthier. He was adopted from the Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust. To pay them back for letting me adopt Simba I volunteer at fundraisers when ever I can, and I have also done some design work for them. Including retracing their logo and creating some posters for advertising.
