About me

Hi, I'm Carolyn Borkowski and I have minimal self control when it comes to gradient use. I mean, look at this place.

But that’s a me thing, I promise I can gradient responsibly when I do design work for you. In fact, I’ve done a whole lot of design work for a whole lot of folks, ranging from teeny, brand-new non-profits with only two employees all the way to several of the world’s most powerful media companies. And they all thought I did a very good job.

I’ve been making digital things for quite some time now. I really am at my best when I get to work at the intersection of visual design and technical function. I’m in a long-term relationship with CSS (we might qualify as a domestic partnership, honestly) and I’ve physically jumped out of my chair with a fist in the air after finally solving a tough technical problem.

When I’m not busy with all that though, I really like doing miscellaneous arts and crafts, painting my nails, and hanging out with my cat, Raspberry.

Wanna be pals or perhaps... something more*? Hit me up.

*colleagues, business associates, or best friends

This is me (the human woman, not the bunny made of pastel cotton candy, although that's an easy mistake to make)
