Graphic Designer and Illustrator, Kim Gee Studio
Isle of Man
I began my career at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, studying Fashion Illustration and Communication Design. My early 20s were spent self-publishing autobiographical comics, before a fateful Kickstarter campaign led to a book deal and contributing over 130 pages of artwork to Build Your Own Website: A Comic Guide to HTML, CSS, and Wordpress (No Starch Press, 2014).
After a collection of internships, I became the one-woman design department at Tasting Table, a Webby-Award Winning food and drink website. I spent over 3 years designing custom ad campaigns and microsites for big name consumer brands, creating editorial illustrations, and eating whatever free food I could find in the Test Kitchen.
In 2016 I moved from New York City to a small rock in the Irish Sea otherwise known as the Isle of Man, where I now run Kim Gee Studio full-time. When I'm not whipping up logos, illustrations, and websites, you can find me cuddling my two dogs, making endless lists, or reading a good memoir.

Keird is Manx for Craft. Liked minded creatives Alice, Quinn, Kim, Grainne, Jenny and Amy came together to form the collective combining their unique skill sets running pop up shops and workshops. The support they give each other shows how this can build friendships and confidence. Both Alice and Quinn were former students of University College Isle of Man (formerly Isle of Man College) on the Art Foundation and Extended Diploma in Art & Design courses.
