Katie Edwards - Graphic Designer & Creative
I’m a young art director known for my hand lettering and illustration skills, but I’ve also dabbled in directing photo shoots and leading creative campaigns. The power of branding has always resonated with me, which is why I put so much love into creating my own personal brand: Katie Kicks Ass.
The brand essence is that of a slightly jaded, starving artist, fan of denim jackets, purple-haired punk rock fan. Now these all sound a little dramatic, but they make up effortlessly cool vibe of Katie Kicks Ass. No, I will not karate chop you if you cut me off in traffic, but I will continue to create kick-ass work - no matter what.
How do you define Feminism?
I would say that Feminism is being consciously aware of equality (or lack there of) between all sexes, but specifically women’s rights. And not only being aware of it, but having your actions reflect those ideals.
How would you improve the world in one small way?
I think most people could practice kindness; there are a lot of selfish human beings in our world and I think if people could just remember to treat people the way they wanted to be treated, then it could be a much better place.
Where in Central Florida do you go to think/relax/enjoy?
I live in the winter park area, so if I need to clear my head or I’m at a creative road block, I’ll go walk over to Park Avenue and get some fresh air. I also frequently go to Park Ave CDs to explore their endless selection of records and books. But if I’m in the mood to do some exploring, and maybe take some photos, I’ll pop into Leu Gardens and get lost in all the nature.
What's Your Current Passion Project?
I’m working on a project called “Out of Office”. It’s going to be a lettering series that are things you would never say in the office, but want to on hard days. For example, “Fresh out of fucks forever.”
What do you wake up for each morning?
I wake up every morning hoping to make the day better than the one prior. I just want to make cool shit and make an impact in someone’s life. I also have a fiance, two dogs, and a cat that I love very much that make starting each day easier.
