Beginning her own company in 1990, Kathy launched several lines of greeting cards with various publishers. Her ability to scatter joy by using expressive art and thoughtful sentiment has captured today’s consumer. Starting out with a small drawing table in the corner of her bedroom, she has grown to become one of the industry’s most respected talents.
A long time member of the KDS “family” (and Kathy’s daughter), Katie Davis joined the team full-time in 2011 after graduating with a degree in Photography from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. When she is not busy designing and photographing for KDS, you can find her eating lots of veggies, rolling in the grass with her dog, Abie, and planning her upcoming wedding.
Fresh out of school, I joined the design team in 2011. Like many of Kathy’s bright designs – my personal style guide has always been that a little pop of color fun can go a long way to bring joy to our everyday lives. From my own closet filled with accessories to even my car- a bright orange VW bug- a colorful outlook is one I strive to live by. From time to time, I would love to give you a view of the KDS world through the eyes of one of it’s designers, and share some of my thoughts on recent trends in style, design, and one of my favorite past times… retail therapy, a.k.a.—shopping.
