Our Team

Katie Briner

Senior Environmental Graphic Designer,

Katie listens to clients to learn their goals and understand their brand. Working alongside architects, interior designers, and engineers, she then translates this knowledge into unique branded environmental graphics and signage to convey the spirit of a client’s culture into their project. She believes that putting yourself in the shoes of the end-user illuminates the best solutions and, for her, putting people first demands clarity and consistency in signage systems. 

Katie enjoys exploring new cities and hiking trails with her husband, daughter, and two tiny dogs. Their preferred lodging on these adventures? Tiny houses! If you’re not tripping over each other, it’s not tiny enough.
