"Originally a graphic artist and web content designer, I enjoy creating digital content from eclectic inspirations. I experiment with sound design and digital video to further present conceptual ideations. With a passion for visual communication and digital media, I am enthralled by the new-age of usability focused user-friendly, and the creative process that accompanies this innovation."
Kathleen has been the Creative Director of a boutique creative agency for 10 years and is looking to move further into areas of content creation/social media, digital management, and UX/UI. She has well developed project management and administration skills, high level interpersonal and communications skills as well as events management to add to her suite of expertise. Technically, she has up to date knowledge of core Adobe CC products (and trying to learn more every day, she has her own subscription), MS Office, Video and Audio editing software as well as being savvy with social media and deployment. She runs a small website hosting business so she is familiar with some elements of back-end web and can build and design content for WordPress sites (as well as other CMS) … She can learn software very fast and has an aptitude for web. She's also REALLY good with a digital camera!
Education wise, apart from her Certificate IV in Graphic Art and Advertising, she has done web/design courses, most notably a short course in Digital Branding and Engagement with Curtain University X (WA), Introduction to HTML5 with the W3 Consortium (she intends on doing more of these) and she is currently enrolled online with the University of Michigan X in a Micro Masters course studying UX Design. She also writes great articles and stories, and can interview like a pro ...
Kathleen's video for indigenous Australian artist Bianca Beetson was a feature of her exhibition at the University of Virginia in 2015.
Kathleen Cameron is a graphic designer and artist who also exhibits, creates craft arts and designs posters, prints and the occasional t shirt. Using her design prowess for the greater good she has adapted and changed with the times as the world of visual communication has taken on a virtual life of it's own. Seriously speaking, Kathleen has an affinity with computers and sometimes intuitively dreams that she actually is one ... or perhaps that's computer's invading her brain ... at any rate UX ... UI and Colour glorious Colour !!! Aestheically and staunchly individual, she knows what trends are but like to set them herself!
Kathleen has a keen eye for composition, position and juxtoposition ... she is a natural with a digital lens and finds the detail in the drama. She doesn't get into types of camera's and she doesn't spend thousands on equipment, preferring the simplicity of syncronicity and serendipity. Natural light is her best friend and she loves a bit of natural blur to bring in the dreamy whispiness that is characteristic of much of her personal works. She can however compose great product photography when the need arises and has an instinct for imaging. Kathleen's photos are conceptualised from pre to post production in the blink of an eye!
Naturally, making visuals out of light and pixels was going to lead to motion and sound. Kathleen can't be quiet at the best of times so it came as no surprise to her that working in audio would be a natural progression of the voice-over pieces and jingles she used to do in TV. Video is something she enjoys to immerse in however lacking the time to put the effort she would like into her vids, she hasn't made as many as she would have liked. A documentarian and activist film-maker in a format genre sense, she has an idea or two for films, but they are so grandiose it will cost a bit and require the services of Tim Burton. "We shall see," are her famous last words.
"photography is a love affair with life"

CREATE WITH KATHLEEN?
Tell me a story and I will take you on a journey!
Intrinsically curious and intuitively outgoing I want to expose, educate, inspire and create a labyrinth of interconnecting humanity. If words are not the way to talk to the audience, I play with all the aural and visual tools that technology has bestowed on us to record and cross‑pollinate our communities!
It is my passion to learn from others and to show others what I have learned.
