owner, creative director
I'm Katelyn! I'm the owner, the hands and the heart behind this precious business of mine.
Growing up, there was nothing I loved more than to be making a mess - drawing, painting, building, sewing, sculpting, jewelry design, you name it.
While working at my last corporate job, I was introduced to the world of graphic design, branding and print; ultimately stumbling across a passion I never knew I had! I found the entire process of graphic arts to be so fascinating and daunting at the same time. Every program seemed so complex and limitless with abilities and options; and trust me, it is!
I invested months educating myself on the world of graphic design and print. Perfecting every detail - first with an idea, then a sketch, then PhotoShop, Illustrator
I invested months learning the ins and outs of design and print; perfecting every detail. First with a concept, then a sketch, converting to digital files,
print-ready files, plate-making and production. Thus a dream was born and I began working toward making it a reality.
I quit my full-time job in 2014 and launched PaperPlum.
