Katechol Design has not received any reviews.
After the acceptance of a publication, I was solicited by the journal to submit an image to be considered for the cover of the issue the article was to appear in. I was then told by a colleague about Kat's exceptional abilities as an artist and subsequently approached her for help. Kat was excited by the opportunity, despite a short deadline, and agreed to help. I had an initial idea for an image and Kat really understood where I was going with it. Notably, she was able to flesh out my idea into a really nice plan, something I was not able to do on my own. Importantly, Kat was very attentive to my input throughout the process and always found a way to incorporate the ideas I had. Although the image Kat made for me was not selected for the cover of the journal, I use her image as frequently as possible to illustrate my research in the presentations I give. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Kat again in the future, and absolutely recommend her for anyone needing design services.
Katharine and I met in graduate school and collaborated on a research project. Over time I learned about her animation and design skills and asked for her help in creating animations for my thesis defense and job talks. Kat sat down with me helped me design fantastic animated summary slides that very effectively communicated the take home message. I have seen the results of her work from other design collaborations and in each case, Kat really spends the time to understand what you are trying to communicate and works to build a scientifically sound, aesthetically pleasing figure or animation.
