Hello

I'm a Glasgow-based freelance designer, with 7 years experience working in design agencies across Scotland. I specialise in brand and communication design across print and digital. Happiest when collaborating with clients and other creatives to come up with impactful design solutions, I thrive on the opportunity to learn something new with every project. In person, I am as sunny as my name.

Client experience
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Changing Faces, Dakota Hotels, Elev8 by Mazars, Festival and King's Theatre, Glasgow Jazz Festival, House for an Art Lover, Loch Fyne, Motion Squared, MQ Mental Health, Regis Corporation, Sarah Jane Cooking, University of the West of Scotland.

Mentoring
I have volunteered as a mentor for students at Edinburgh College since 2015. I love working with designers at the start of their career, it's an opportunity for us to bring design education and the industry closer. We work with the students on a variety of live client briefs, one week projects and support them through placements. 

Play
It's important for me to experiment with new skills and processes in my spare time. Projects have ranged from illustrated quotes, a risograph printing workshop and collaborating with fellow designer, Kirsten Murray to create Aye Magazine under The Tits. We were recently interviewed for a feature on The Design Kids.

If you have a project that you'd like to discuss, give me a shout at kat@kathrynsummers.co.uk
