Meet the Go Media Staff: Katie Major

Turquoise Flag-Tip

We recently hired two young and talented graphic designers to our staff. Katie Major is one of them and she wrote up a short little bio for you.

katiemajor.jpg I joined Go Media for several reasons. The employees are down to earth, hard working people that respect the importance of GOOD design. I liked much of the work that is produced, and their client base is diverse. Most of all I respect their idea that honest business is good business; this seems to be a mantra that few companies embrace these days.

Work I’ve done in my 3.5 weeks so far: TPM Magazine Advertisement, LOTS of Pepsi website development, flash animations and other promotional stuff for Go Media. Created 3 new fonts for the Arsenal: Celest, Diffraction, and Identity Theft. They will be available soon.

What I’m responsible for: Designing, coding, and enhancing anything that is thrown on my desk.

What I like: Knitting, photography, movies, exploring new places, museums, shrinky-dinks, tea, camping, gallery openings, beaches, parks, jogging, playing violin and piano, learning new things.

Favorite Quotes:

“The things you own end up owning you.”

“Life isn’t worth living if you can’t feel alive.”

“If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.”

“Don’t take life to seriously because if you do you’ll forget to laugh”

“The only God the world serves is success, not greatness.”

    OK – now I know my summation is correct…

    Smokin’ + hotties = good design

    …and they said there would be no math. Looking forward to seeing more of Katie (and her design thinga-ma-jiggers) ;)

    Nice work, good lookin’ stuff. Good luck launching your career…it should be a blast at a place like GO.

    Makes me wish I were 25 years younger (and 20 pounds lighter) and I could do it again myself.
