PROFILE

Katrina Greenslade - Designer, Illustrator & Good Sort

Since 2002 Self-employed

1993 - 1998 In-house designer at Global Culture
1990 - 1993 Diploma of Visual Communication - Christchurch Institute of Technology

Throughout my career I have been fortunate to have worked on some superb projects for notable national and international clients and brands.

After a decade of employment at both Global Culture and Canterbury International my forte became graphic design for the apparel industry. In more recent years I have been designing fabric and textile prints and I particularly enjoy the combination of the illustrative and Photoshop work this requires. I have oodles of technical knowledge when designing and preparing artwork for screenprinting.

Self-initiated side projects have included being published in 2016 with my small coffee-table type book ‘Know’. I also seem to visually enhancing my local community by one logo at a time it seems.

I work from a home office and when I am not being creative I am a busy mum to two boys, a foster mum to foster kittens, a nag to my husband, and almost daily I can be found in a frenzied state trying to maintain orderliness. I believe they call it ‘life balance’.

Surprisingly to many, I am a trout-fisherperson. And I once won a champion-of-champions trophy in pool. I always return my shopping trolley, know where to use the words ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ correctly, and most nights I get by with a buttery chardonnay.
