Designer Off Grid

Hello, world! I am Kathleen, a digital nomad, who loves to design with a purpose, and good intentions. I specialize in breaking down problems, solving them with design, and transforming them into beautiful digital products.

Design Portfolio
  • Making something look good, is easy. Getting the right message across is my forte. In this portfolio, you'll see different graphic design projects from various industries and clients that I have worked with around the globe.
  • Experience: I started working in a print shop at 16yrs old and have never stopped working then. I have always stayed within the design industry. So I'd say I have about 15 years of experience to date. Now you know my age.
  • Project Management Effective Written & Verbal Communication Time Management Typography Adobe Creative Suite Branding Presentation Design Bias Social Media Marketing

eLearning Portfolio
  • Every day I learn. If I stop learning, I stop living. I treat each course material like I am cleaning up and organizing a new part of the closet(a.k.a the brain). At the end of a course, each learner should feel like they can easily apply the knowledge and build habits toward better learning.
  • Experience: My first role as an eLearning Specialist was in Malaysia. I was an eLearning designer & also a voice talent for K-12 subjects. I then became a UX designer helping course creators use our LMS for training. Learning is such a big part of my life, an essential skill that has helped me grow my career since day 1.

Web Development Portfolio
  • When I want to make design and learning pretty functional, my web development skills are a lifesaver. In this portfolio, I showcase projects that have a majority of UX/UI and Web development projects that I am passionately deep in the weeds.
  • Experience: I'm not a novice, but I started my path by becoming a UX/UI developer and have been in love with humanizing everything digital. I am constantly working toward becoming an intermediate Javascript Developer. This whole website was made by moi as an example.
