From Syracuse University where she earned a BFA to Communications Design, to the 2013 London International Awards where she recently served on the global “Creative Conversations” panel, Kar-Kate’s ascension in the design world has been as meteoric as it is well deserved. Armed with a slew of nicknames (“Kit Kat,” K-Keezy,” “Mario Kart-Kate”) and the belief that innovation, imagination, and big ideas can help change the world, she parlayed her first job creating content and design materials for FedEx into a career at Hill Holliday, where she now creates breakthrough work for such clients as Cigna, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Liberty Mutual.
