Hello, world

Hai. My name is Katie, and this is my blog. I’m a graphic designer living in Dayton Ohio. I’ve got a husband and a dog and a house, and everything else is undetermined.

Between looking for freelance design work and looking for full-time positions, my new years resolution last year was to build my own website. I taught myself basic html and css with the help of some friends and now, a year later, I’m taking what feels like an even bigger step. This is my 2012 new years resolution: blogging, posting things, making a cozy home for my stuff on the web that’s more substantial than my nerdy tweets.

I’m leaning towards posting on wednesdays, but we’ll see how that goes. I will post behind the scenes and process work of my doodles, which I love making, and people love seeing. I want to make them better, I want to make them awesome, and I believe this is the way to do it. I’ll start off posting doodles of my friends and we’ll see how that goes.

I also plan to have posts about design, and marketing, and things that really make me think. For instance, I’m currently sitting in the conference hallway of CodeMash, a developers conference hosted in Sandusky, OH. Completely out of my element, but the experience is fascinating. I really want to write about it when I get home. But, doodles first, nerdy pondering second.
