I (Kimberly Graydon) am a designer, photographer, and storyteller based out of Philadelphia, PA. In true millennial fashion, I shoulder a combination of on-location and remote work. I’m a graduate of the Corcoran School of Art and Design at the George Washington University (magna cum laude) and a current publication and branding designer at Spaeth Hill.
I’ve lived in many places, but my OG home is Texas. Born in El Paso and raised in Dallas, I spent my formative Texas years developing a passion for photography and graphic design. I elected to study photojournalism at the Corcoran School of Art and Design at the George Washington University, uprooting my life and my passions to Washington, D.C. Though I did ultimately change my course of study to focus on graphic design, I still ground my work in photography and strong visual imagery. I’m thankful that design and photography go hand in hand, meaning that whatever I work on—and wherever I call home—I’ll be able to experiment with both of my passions.
After graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design in May of 2018, I took on a job as a production and branding designer with Spaeth Hill in Alexandria, Virginia. In my free time, I hire myself out as a freelance photographer and made-to-order knitter (visit @_kimberlyknits on Instagram to see my current and past projects). My other hobbies include reading, traveling, and exploring all that this big blue planet has to offer.
I was an RA in college, so I’ve accumulated a strong collection of fun facts. Maybe that’s a fun fact in itself.
I’m only 5 feet tall, but nothing about my personality is small
My birthday falls on (and I strongly identify with) the Sagittarius and Capricorn cusp
I love cats, coffee, tacos, and buying shoes I don’t need
