My name is Kathie Gambale (aka Kathie Scrobanovich) and I am a Creative Director, based out of New City, New York. I have explored many different areas in art and design all my life, starting with fine arts in elementary to textiles in high school. I continued my love of art by attending the School of Visual Arts (SVA). There, I earned a BFA in Graphic Design and went on to win awards for my work throughout my career.
I have designed and dabbled in many areas... packaging, branding/marketing, web/digital design, and video editing- but over the past decade, my editorial work took center stage. I have been published in the Society of Publication Design Annuals and Type Directors Club, and have also won various awards through Healthcare Advertising and Aster Awards, which are competitions that recognize the nation's most talented healthcare marketing professionals.
I am a perfectionist at heart, but always know how to break free from the ordinary and think conceptually. I display a sophisticated visual sense with strong typographic skills and have a keen eye when it comes to artistic details. My ability to execute under pressure while maintaining a positive attitude makes me a great asset in any team working environment. I have always been open to educating myself, especially through our ever-changing industry, and keeping up with everyday trends and digital knowledge.
I am first and foremost a wife and boy mom- family means the world to me. In my free time, I love to work out and eat healthily but don't be fooled- I will indulge in peanut butter if you give me a spoon and the jar! It's all about balance. I am a huge animal lover and have a 100lb Bernedoodle named Jasper and 2 sister kitties named Harley and Quinn. I am also a Disney fanatic and love a good superhero movie (hence where my kitties' names came from).
In my spare time, I also love to create my own custom designs as well. My sister and I founded Paperkat Design and keep our weekends busy by designing and hand-making invitations and coordinating day-of assets.
