Catherine J. Kim is a graphic art designer that makes a statement with her colorful and bright creations.
Catherine started sharing candy-colored digital collages from her self-initiated “100 Days” campaign last fall via her Instagram account and it was love at first sight. Her visual mashups combine the familiar in unfamiliar ways. Cactus lollipop? Check. Pineapple grenade? Check. Disco watermelon. Check. Working with brands and editorial clients like Kiehl’s, Playboy, L’Oreal, RxArt and Nylon Magazine, Kim creates playful and engaging social and editorial content with a clear vision for the brand and how it resonates with their audience.
For MOLD’s design week newspaper, Kim created “Candy Tape” in collaboration with photographer Josh Din. “This image explores how everyday objects can be combined in unexpected ways and given new life,” Kim told MOLD. “In this case a tape dispenser is combined with candy and given a new purpose.”
She loves experimenting with bright colors and graphic compositions. Her work combines graphic design with photography, art, and styling to create elegant but striking visuals. She loves building brands through visual storytelling and works on a variety of projects ranging from branding, graphic design, art direction, content creation, installation, to video and stop-motion. Chocolate is her favorite vegetable.
