WOWsdom Project Update: Meet Our Illustrator

o6nh-0okKaren Kurycki is a designer/illustrator in Jacksonville, FL. Design is her passion and she loves to combine illustration with design in her commercial work. Karen has been experimenting with watercolor since her days at Kent State University, embracing its unpredictability and the surprises that can come out of using it. She admits that in her view of the world she usually sees the humorous, the quirky, the slightly off “normal”, which she tries to communicate through her design and illustration.

Karen has worked with a number of national and international clients including The Washington Post, Nike, Reebok, Target, McDonald’s, AT&T, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Choice Organic Teas, and Emirates Airline. She has also served as president of the Jacksonville AIGA chapter from 2011-2013, and is a strong proponent of volunteerism. During her role as Community Outreach Chair for AIGA Jacksonville, she was instrumental in starting Discover Design, a mentoring program for high school students that has been active for eight years. She currently serves on the board for The Elements, MOSH’s young professional group, as well as the National AIGA Get out the Vote initiative.
