Katie Kinard is our digital designer at Yellow Duck Marketing. Originally from the blue-water beaches of South Florida, Katie relocated inland to study advertising at UGA — Go Dawgs! With a Bachelor of Journalism degree in Advertising and internships in marketing, as well as graphic design, she moved to Charlotte last year ready to put her skills to work.

Her last gig was working as an in-house Graphic Designer for Cheeky Peach in her college town of Athens, Georgia. At Cheeky, she led a rebranding and spearheaded a shift in the company’s selling platform to social media commerce.

Katie assists with digital design, branding, and photography.  She truly loves learning about unique brand stories and using her design skills to elevate their voice in the market. Katie enjoys being in a constant state of making and creating and finds that same satisfaction when doing work for a company or brand.

In her spare time, Katie enjoys shibori fabric dyeing, photography and hanging out with her cat Pepper. She is currently learning coding and hopes to use this skill to contribute to more projects at the pond.
