Hey! I am Karri Burke a Communication Designer specialising in publication and branded design, with experience in social media marketing and campaign strategies. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Design majoring in Communication Design and a Bachelor of Media and Communication majoring in Digital Advertising Technology at the Swinburne University of Technology.

I am passionate about expressing clear messages and purpose through my design work, creating clear design is vital. What is the point of creating something if it doesn't make sense? Throughout my degree I have learnt the importance of catering for an audience, researching and understanding the needs and desires of said audience, other than my own. As a designer I believe we all have moments where we create for ourselves, forgetting who we are designing for - therefore I love the notion of creating a branded identity. In doing so, I have had the opportunity to branch away from my own style and experiment, creating designs that I normally would not. Stepping out of my comfort zone and diving headfirst into a new vision is a challenge I am always looking for.

I have produced promotional print material within my current role as Marketing and Communications Officer at South Oakleigh College. Ranging from printed flyers to billboard designs, I have since expanded my skills into the development of a full-scale honour board and wayfinding project at the College, implementing my knowledge of branding to create a cohesive brand language throughout each piece.
