Elevate has added another amazing talent to the art team with the new hire of Kara DeBoeser. Kara, the agency’s new Associate Art Director, brings a wide variety of experiences to Elevate. Kara earned her bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design right in our backyard at Philadelphia University and continued her studies overseas at Camberwell College of Art in London, where she earned a master’s degree in Visual Communication Design.
With those degrees, Kara has spent the last 10 years working in visual communication design. She comes to us from St. Luke’s University Health Network, where she worked on hospital network brand and hospital sub-brand marketing materials.
Kara is also well traveled, having worked at agencies in Philadelphia, London, Scotland, and the Spanish island of Mallorca. On working in international markets. Kara said, “There weren’t any language barriers; the team was focused on delivering great work, and we would make sure the right message was coming across even if I didn’t speak the language.”
There’s no doubt that Kara has a passion for design, and she still finds a way to create in different ways outside the office. In her free time, she enjoys knitting, sewing apparel, and playing the piano.
Kara said she finds design inspiration in “travel, art exhibits, magazines, recipe books, … I love to explore, experiment, and learn.”
We are thrilled to see what she comes up with next. Welcome Kara!
