About

My name is Kate Duncan-Welke, and I am an alumnus of Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. I graduated in June 2012 with a major in Environmental Studies, and minors in Studio Art and Art History - two seemingly disparate focii that combined make for sustainable design.


As a designer I focus on a clean, crisp aesthetic that is both visually pleasing and conscientious of user experience standards and design trends. As an earth-conscious individual too, however, I aim for my works and design process to have a low environmental impact. I have experience working on front-end development, graphic design, client success, and managing online communities. Please see the information below for details about my skills and knowledges.
