HI DEAR VISITOR! I'm glad that you found your way to my homepage. My name is Katharina and I'm a freelance Illustrator and Graphic Designer from the south of Germany. Feel free to have a look around on my page. I hope, you like my work. I'm available for freelance work in my field so don't hesitate to write me an eMail to kathi.neto(at)posteo.de if I can help you.

A BIT ABOUT MYSELF: I started drawing when I was old enough to hold a pencil. Since then, I never put it down. My first comic pages have been created when I was 13 and around that time I also decided, that this is exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life: Drawing and creating!!!

I NEVER STOPPED so I was able to attend the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg to study Communication Design with a practical focus on Illustration. I also spend my fifth semester as an Erasmus student at the University of Lapland doing design and free art projects. After gaining a lot of experience, I graduated August 2012 as a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design.


RIGHT AFTER I WAS DONE WITH UNIVERSITY I started a half year internship at the cover design department of the german publishing house dtv where I learned a ton more about graphic design, typography and the best workflow. After my internship was over I dove into the world of being a freelance illustrator and designer and I already was able to work on plenty of great projects. Since February 2014 I'm back at dtv as a freelance cover designer. But I usually only work there for a couple of days a week so I am currently looking for freelance projects as well. So if you would like to work with me on a project, please contact me.

I'M QUITE ACTIVE ON SOME SOCIAL MEDIA SITES, so if you want to see more about my work and get all the news regarding my projects, please follow me there.
