Hey there! I'm Katelyn — a designer for Ad Hoc in Washington D.C., living the #remotelife while working to improve government digital services.
In 2017, I launched my freelance business Pleasant Design (a long-held dream of mine). Previously, I designed for The Chronicle and Iatric Systems. I fell in love with the connection between the physical experience and the user interface while studying Industrial Design at Georgia Tech.

I enjoy constantly upping my game by surrounding myself with my intelligent peers in the DC design community at events run by organizations such as AIGA, UXPA, Refresh DC, and CreativeMornings.

I'm the founder/organizer of a small design-focused book club called District UX. We meet every other month to discuss user experience-related books and find ways to apply the book concepts to our own careers. If you’re interested in becoming a District UX member, drop a line districtux@gmail.com. We also have a Slack group where we discuss future books, upcoming meetings and general design banter.

When I’m not designing, I spend my free time practicing/teaching yoga, visiting craft breweries, homebrewing, traveling, biking, and drinking appropriately strong coffee. I also love to read — about business, design, yoga, and sci-fi.
I’ve got a full-time gig at the moment, but if you’re looking to work together in the future, you can email me, follow me on Twitter, or browse my Dribbble reel.
