Hi, I’m Kate Halvorsen

I’m a Minnesota transplant living in Chicago. I graduated from a Winona State University with a degree in graphic design and a focus in new media and illustration. I’ve worked in a variety of design environments from traditional print agencies to corporate UX to a literal zoo.

At the moment I am working as senior UI/UX designer at United Airlines. I work to support and manage United’s digital design system. In my time with UX, I have come to find that I am very interested in the psychology of design and reusable structure of design systems . Some other hats I wear include, illustrator, whiteboard doodler and office cat enthusiast.
