About

From UX Designer to Becoming my own Creative/Designer

My name is Kimi and I am the creative behind the little calligraphy and design shop, The Kimi Collective. When I'm not crossing every t or dotting every i, you can find me in a pilates studio or out on a new adventure.

Simply put, I love people. I love making genuine connections with others and helping people. Before The Kimi Collective, I worked as a UX designer in which I helped make technology products easier for people to use. I also have a passion for creating new experiences - I'm almost always up for a new adventure and love to make memories that will last a lifetime.

The Kimi Collective was first started as a creative outlet from my 9-5 day job but as time went on, my hobby became my passion. Never in a million years did I think that my little hobby would turn into what The Kimi Collective is today. Not only do I get to share my love for letters, I also get to connect with genuine, kind, encouraging, talented individuals everyday! I love meeting new people so don't be afraid to reach out and say hi! :)
