About Me

this is a picture of me.

My name is Katherine Alas,and I am a latina graphic designer.One of my favorite artists has been Frida Kahlo because I think her paintings were sometimes strange but done in a beautiful way. I think she was great at using the painting and telling a story, I also really like the way she uses color. A graphic designer who inspires me is Lourdes Zolezzi, she a recognize for her incredible use of graphics and pictures joined together. Something I personally like about her designs is that a lot of them are simple but very effective and on some occasions, she uses her work to communicate important issues like child hunger and violence towards women. Both of these women are very inspiring to me and both have a very unique style to their work, which is something I think is important and something I want to find for myself.I try to make my designs to be simple but unique because I think having a good design doesn’t have to be too complex, and if its a good design it will be able to get the message to the audience. I like to stay creative in my own time with some of my hobbies which are drawing, painting, and embroidery. I personally enjoy drawing scenery and backgrounds over all.
