Katie J.

Marketing & Brand Designer

My love for graphic design was sparked in high school when I joined the school newspaper– I discovered my passion and decided to pursue it as my career. Being a part of the Gardner team allows me to find solutions to design problems and create impactful designs to present to our clients and partners. Surrounded by a team full of ideas and collaboration, I have the opportunity to get creative in an open-minded environment. Brainstorming with others and seeing our work well-received is a great feeling and inspires me for what’s ahead! 

Outside of the office, I enjoy staying active, whether that be going for walks, runs, or swimming. My significant other and I also love going out to eat and trying new places around the Twin Cities as much as possible.

Favorite Tool:

Procreate, a digital drawing app on the iPad. I love the ability to draw with a pencil with the benefits of a digital program.

Little Known Facts:

I was a competitive synchronized swimmer for over 8 years.

I have two fluffy white cats.

My sister and I are both graphic designers.
