Behind the Scenes

I'm Katie Holeman, owner and designer at KSH Creative. While based in the Philadelphia area, I work with clients all over the globe from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Sydney, Australia.

A Connecticut native, I started out on my artistic path as a studio artist with a focus in illustration and print-making. I graduated with a B.F.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2001 and began my graphic design career in Manhattan as a production coordinator and book designer at Welcome Books and Random House. I moved to Philadelphia in 2007 where I was the Graphic Design and Web Development Manager for University City District until the fall of 2014. I started KSH Creative in 2008 and took it to the next level as my full time career in 2014.

My clients include Doane Academy, The Franklin Institute, The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, The Health Promotion Council of Philadelphia, and Yarn Culture LLC.

When I'm not working at my computer, I am usually painting and drawing. I am the illustrator of four adult coloring books.
