Never Boring

Katie Dowling

Senior Designer

Katie Dowling joined the Never Boring team in 2006 as a superstar in our sign department. For nearly four years, Katie fabricated custom marketing pieces in vinyl, canvas, magnet and, well, just about anything else she could fit through the company's large-scale printer. From there, Katie worked her way upward, building strong client relationships and friendships over the years. Since 2010, Katie has been an integral member of Never Boring's award-winning graphic design team—and now she’s leading it, providing art direction as needed and managing an impressive work flow with a tight turnaround. Her workload can include anything from publication design for the Gallo Center for the Arts or ongoing event and promotional design for the State Theatre in Modesto to finely detailed custom client-driven work and any other marketing and collateral piece you can imagine. On top of Katie's graphic design acumen, she's also an award-winning photographer, a major source of joy in the office and is quite possibly the coolest person you've ever met.
