about me


Design Life

Hello! My name is Kim and I am a full-time graphic designer at Imagination International, Inc. and here-and-there freelance designer, with a degree in graphic design. I specialize in digital illustration, with clients such as Scholastic Inc., Mini Mag Magazine, Breakfast Criminals, Gretchen Easton Photography for KardashianKids, Margherita Kids and Soopergirl, plus a number of other fun projects. I have experience with both web and print.

Last year, I had the opportunity as co-Editor-in-Chief of The Bleed 2016 Magazine. Our Volume 7 issue was a winner of the Pacemaker APC award. Bonus: recieved a 2016 Design of the Year Award for illustration, 7th place. 

Currently, I am having a blast working at Imagination International, Inc. as a full-time graphic designer. 




Charmed, I'm sure

A born and raised Californian turned Oregonian, trying to pretend I don't get sick of the rain. From painting to animated gifs, I love and live design. If I am not designing or working I am usually having some adventures in the sunshine. If it is a rainy day then I am inside playing video games or reading comics & manga. Here are a few of my (current) favorite things:
