ABOUT ME // KATY VAN EST

Hi All! I am a recent graduate from Iowa State University with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design. I also have an A.A.S. in Horse Science Technology from Black Hawk College.


I really enjoy all areas of design, but have recently been dabbling quite a bit in web and digital design. Of course, I will always like print design too! Another area I am passionate about is photography.


I hope you enjoy my site and perusing through my portfolio. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!

BAILEY LAUERMAN // 6 WEEK INTERNSHIP

Digital Design Intern

Created this banner on the homepage of Bailey Lauerman, announcing their partnership with Cuties Mandarins.

Our first day as interns, we were thrown right into our own project! From start to finish, from designs, to client to communication, to research, we were to create a campaign for the Nebraska Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation for their booth at the College World Series. As the Digital Design Intern, I was tasked with creating web and social media images as well as helping with the main portions of the booth design, such as the large fact signs, seen above. I also created a video, documenting our process for the Nebraska Chapter to share at a national conference.


Other things I worked on:

• Concepting for Panda Express

• Concepting for Branson

• Mailer ideas for announcements

• Placemats for meetings with clients
