I’m Katie! I am currently working as a Senior Product Designer at Forge Studio. I have 11+ years of design experience. I’m currently based in Chattanooga, Tennessee; enjoying the beautiful mountain landscape. I’m a huge nerd when it comes to design specifically around creating systems and processes to work efficiently and effectively as a team. I also enjoy mentoring and helping other designers in their careers. I have a well-rounded skill set including branding, illustration, and Webflow development but am primarily focused on building multi-brand design systems and product design.

🔥🔥🔥 another resounding "we love it!" katie cooper design review moment!

@Katie Cooper this is freakin' awesome. ZERO changes. T and I reviewed it together. It's brilliant.
you're an awesome leader on this team!!!! keep up the good work!!! 🙌🏻
KC COLA Katie is THE best hire we've made this past year. (shhhhh don't tell anyone I said that). It did not take Katie long to pull ahead as a leader and key contributor to our work and culture here. I love working with Katie she's so fun, but yet down to business. She's gracious with her time to help others, and exhibits an infectious confidence and vulnerability as a creative. I'm inspired by her work, and thankful to be her friend and team mate. Hoping to work on some more projects with Katie next year.
I just want to shout out @Katie Cooper for her work on our project flows a few weeks ago. Designing within the framework she's thought through has made my job 10x easier and more clear on what to focus on at each point along the way this time. Very excited to keep refining our processes to make all our jobs easier!! ❤️ go teamwork!
This is the best launch frame I've seen built out in Webflow, Katie Cooper. (and I've seen a lot of them). I've worked with over 100 designers over the last decade, and you have the cleanest and easiest Figma files to work within/understand and develop from. Your styles are consistent, and everything makes sense.
your product design skills holy f
