Graphic Designer.

Problem Solver.

Team Player.

I’m Kathy Davis, and IdeaSwirl is my studio. A graphic designer with more than 25 years of experience, I’ve helped businesses of all sizes develop a broad range of effective promotional materials. I can do the same for you.

What I Do Best

While I have worked on a wide range of projects over the course of my career, these are the things I most enjoy creating.

Brand Development

Whether you need a fresh-looking logo, accompanying collateral, signage or complete rebranding, I create cohesive visuals that people remember.

Graphic Design

My extensive expertise spans printed materials of all types including brochures, financial reports, infographics and packaging, as well as traditional print, digital and outdoor advertising.

Digital Media

I design intuitive websites that convey the unique flavor of a business, paired with social media graphics that help spread the word.

A Speech-Language Pathologist for nearly 25 years, I wanted to take my private practice to the next level. That’s when I turned to Kathy Davis. Kathy created a brochure that doubled my business in just three months, and explains how I focus my energy to help others. She is reliable, talented, and designs materials that reflect your company in a most perfect way.

Knowing Kathy personally and professionally for over 20 years, I am still constantly impressed with her creativity and innovation. Kathy has the ability to develop graphics and designs that are fresh, and yet classic at the same time. She truly makes every project better and easier, and her eye for detail is impeccable. I would not only recommend her; I would insist on her.

Jerry Hancock – Managing Partner, AlexanderHancock Associates

I have worked with Kathy on several projects, and on each one, she was the consummate professional. First of all, she was creative, as you would imagine for a graphic designer. Her ideas were original, interesting, and lively. She had a keen eye for detail and offered new ways of seeing things in design and layout. She never fell back on old ideas or images, but instead developed each project by creating something new and exciting. The websites she created for my two projects are simply beautiful and user-friendly, a rare combination.
