Katie is a graphic designer based in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand. Her multi-disciplinary practice involves book-making, visual identities and community events. Her approach to both her professional and arts-based practice is to instigate research-led work that is insightful, critical and poetic. She has recently finished her MFA at Ilam School of Fine Arts, where she has been exploring alternative structures of design practice in relation to self-publishing, community and environment.


Studio Katie Kerr is a design practice focussing on the creation of books, publications and printed materials in the broad field of the contemporary cultural sector. I collaborate with clients internationally to generate insightful, critical and poetic solutions that explore both material and editorial context.
