Kate Larrabee

Kate’s interest in branding began with a love for storytelling, design, and culture. She has an undergraduate degree in anthropology from New York University. What followed was a series of years spent searching for a way to combine her interests into role that was both creative and strategic.    


She has worked in advertising as account planner, a freelance illustrator / photographer, a design strategist, project coordinator for a design firm, and most recently as a futurist, translating trends into actionable brand strategies.    


Professionally Kate is interested in the complexities of Millennials and the cultural shifts new technology is creating.   


Excited about the possibilities of branding, Kate is happy to have found a discipline that combines strategic and creative thinking into one dynamic role.    


She lives in New York and while not soaking up the local culture, can be found drawing, playing bocce, and seeking out the best matcha latte in the city.    

The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
