Meet Our Newest Designer:
Kim Cowles

Where are you from?

San José, Costa Rica.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I’m a self-taught graphic designer based in Fargo with a tiny obsession with visual arts. If I’m not working, I’m probably drawing or taking an online course.

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?

Probably Katherine Langford because some people think I kinda look like her.

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

I love learning new stuff, so I’m normally watching tutorials or taking an online course.

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?

I could live my whole life just eating pasta.

What part of your position provides the most value?

Create eye-catching designs for our magazines.

Tell us about your experience.

I studied Marketing and Digital Communication in Costa Rica, where I got the opportunity to learn more about Photoshop. After winning a contest I started working for an agency for a year and 4 months where I learned everything I know about graphic design. After moving to the U.S I worked another 7 months for them and then I tried freelancing for almost a year and 2 months.

What part of your job do you believe makes the most impact?

Being able to communicate any message with a design.

Why does our community matter to you?

Because I’m also part of it, and if there is a way to make it better, I want to be part of it.

What are some of your goals at Spotlight?

My main goal is to provide great designs for our magazines and create an impact in our community.
