Kate Giebink

Design, Direction and Motion

Our lead Gieka, Kate holds a diverse background in advertising with a focus in print/interactive design, motion graphics and video production. The woman is naked without a camera in hand and always has her bug out bag filled with essential supplies including bass and microphone in case emergency entertainment relief is needed. Kate believes immersion in the product she is working on is key and will climb mountains and cross raging rapids to achieve that immersion [literally...no seriously she has literally done this].

Check out the video to learn more about Kate.

"Kate is a bright shining team player,
with energy and talent to keep everyone around her not only energized but super-creative.
She's never had a bad day in her life...and her demeanor shows through in her work!
She's a delight to work with and be around. Great designer, multi-talented and versatile,
and always smiling!"

− Steve Gordon {Marketing Communications Consultant}

"I had the opportunity to work with Kate as both a contractor and as a salaried employee. I found Kate to be resourceful and responsive in her ability to bring creative solutions to strategies. She always kept up on trends that made sure her work was reflective of rapidly changing consumer tastes."

− Melvin Tennant, II MA, CAE {Experienced and Innovative Destination Marketing Executive}

"Kate created my company logo. I was impressed with her interactive and consultative process. She met with me to better understand the mission and the audience I was trying to reach. She then developed several designs. With each iteration she solicited my feedback and gave further choices and recommendations. I am very pleased with the end design. I recommend Kate for design work, she's got a great eye and is able to incorporate clients' perspectives so the final product is clean, artistic and reflective of the business."

− Shayne Fettig {Leadership Assessment for Selection and Development,Coaching, Food Allergy Consulting}

"Kate is great to work with — she's a creative thinker with a great attitude and a flexible approach. I really appreciate her ability to quickly grasp the most important aspects of a project
and deliver on them, on schedule."

− Kelly Bartell {Associate Creative Director at Catapult Marketing}

"Kate was awesome to work with, definitely has the design and management skills to deliver on any project with any time line. Her experience as a designer shows in leading other designers and projects. I'm glad to have worked with Kate, because if I ever need a go-to-get it done, and done well designer,
I feel most comfortable collaborating or recommending her for work.
It's always good to know great designers and most importantly good people like Kate."

− Chad Amon {Designer IBM}

"Kate is a creative who really thinks about things from a different point of view and sees other angles to projects that can help a team look at things differently. She's a hard worker who dedicates herself to the tasks she is focused on. She encourages others to think creatively. As a colleague, Kate could liven up the office with her laugh. Or maybe a song (she's also a talented singer). She excelled when she had an opportunity to design something new and fresh. When working on a new logo for our organization with an outside agency, she took what they provided and improved upon it by really understanding the brand we represent. Her mark on that logo will stay with the company (perhaps forever!) in setting our brand identification and style. Overall, Kate will bring ideas and fresh perspective
to whatever tasks are before her."
