Meet The Students: Katherine Killeffer

Oct 24 2018

Each year at the start of the first semester we ask our new students to say a few words about one or more favorite projects.

Designer: Katherine Killeffer

I’ve created a wide range of editorial illustrations (35+) for Broadly, VICE Media’s women focused content channel – covering everything from broken ankle fetishists, to the analysis of anatomical references in rap lyrics by a practicing OB-GYN. I love the challenge of bringing an unexpected (often borderline NSFW) topic to life with a single visual!

“Unimpressionism” is an ongoing personal project where I take famous works of art and make them roll their eyes. As a big art history fan, I wanted more ways to roll my eyes in a “classy” way during these eye-roll worthy times. You can follow along on Instagram @unimpressionism, or find and use the GIFs yourself on Giphy (and Giphy stickers on Insta Stories) with #unimpressionism. It’s been a blast to see my stickers and GIFs reposted and reused across the internet, and I just launched an ongoing partnership with ArtUK, an organization promoting the art collections of museums throughout the UK, to bring their artworks to life with a bit of sass.
