Meet our very first featured designer McKenna, the amazing one woman show behind Kenna Sato Designs. You would have probably seen a lot of her work online, and she is especially known for her unique clip arts and vinyl decals. She is also the first to be in a featured designer bundle on our site, The Nifty Clipart Pack .
Read on as she sheds some light on her journey as a designer;
How long have you been a designer?
I started designing about 10 years ago as a hobby, but it wasn’t until 2-3 years ago that I was able to make designing my full-time job.
What is the one item you cannot live without?
This is pretty old-fashioned, but when it comes to designing, I can’t live without my pencil and notebook! I have tried sketching on art tablets and other devices, but in my opinion, nothing beats a plain ol’ piece of paper.
Do you have any pets?
I have two horrible cockatiels that I love very much, their favourite thing to do is bite the keys off my keyboard whenever I am trying to get work done.
What’s a fun fact that people would like to know about you?
One time, I tripped over Lindsay Lohan at the mall 😀
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I’ve sort of been obsessed with Iceland recently. I’d say it’s currently at the top of my list of places I would like to visit.
What would your superhero name be ?
It’s between Captain Clip Art or Design-O
If you weren’t a designer, what would you be doing ?
I’m currently getting my degree in information technology, so I would most likely be doing something in that field.
What’s your No.1 hobby after design?
How would you describe your design style?
Lastly, what advice would you give your fellow designers?
As cliche as this sounds, my advice is to be patient when it comes to learning new techniques and programs. I remember how frustrating and overwhelming it was to learn the design programs, but I’m glad I stuck with it!
