Just because you can buy a nail gun, doesn't mean you can build a house. Just because you can buy some software, doesn't mean you can create a professional publication or logo to promote your business. The fact is, you need a professional who is familiar with the world of print and design and can create the materials that give your business a quality look to promote the quality product or service you offer. That's my job.
Hello, it's nice to meet you.

If you need graphic design services, you have arrived at the right place. My name is Kim Koellsted, and I've been creating print materials for clients since 1998. After graduating from Auburn University, I worked at a newspaper creating ads, then moved on to designing print materials at an in-house print shop for a manufacturing facility. I now work for a commercial printer doing prepress and design, and freelance in my spare time. Years of experience have taught me what a printer needs to make your vision come to life. I've also won several awards for my work:
1999 – Best Special Section in Division B from the Alabama Press Association for Tiger Tailgater Edition of the Opelika-Auburn News
2001-2003 – Most recognized ads in publications Water Well Journal and Drilling Marketplace as determined by AdScore
2007 – Second place Division 1A football program content by CoSIDA for University of Southern Mississippi program
2010 – Gold Addy® Award from the Chattahoochee Valley chapter of the American Advertising Federation in the Advertising Industry Self-promotion–Single Medium Campaign category for Craftmaster Printers self-promotion materials I can create everything from an identity for your business to newsletters and magazines, and anything in between. If you just need a brochure or flyer designed, I can do that. I can work with your existing logo and stationery and create items that will mesh with your current look. Or I can help you create an entirely new look for your business or product. Browse my site, check out my portfolio, and contact me for an estimate.

Print makes a great impression. Your business needs to make a great impression. The first impression most potential customers get comes from seeing your logo, stationery, brochures and ads. If these things look professional, they're more likely to believe you provide a high-quality product or service. And that boosts your profits.

I own a digital SLR, and I know how to use it. Most of my photography has been done as a hobby, but I have done some for design projects. All of the photography on this site is original, copyrighted, and cannot be downloaded without written permission. More of my original photography can be viewed at:

Graphic artist, sometimes artist.

In addition to my computer skills, I am trained and work in a variety of mediums. My favorites are pencil and pen. Most of my art is done as a hobby, but I will be happy to discuss a commissioned piece if you have something in mind. This page is currently under construction, so, eventually, there will be photos of some of my artwork on here.
