Urban Reiver is a contemporary design studio based in Scotland, created in 2009 by Illustrator & Graphic Designer Katherine Butler, a graduate in Fashion Design.  Small but sweet, Urban Reiver takes on projects that vary in size and complexity, and works for her numerous clients across the United Kingdom.  
Whilst Urban Reiver specialises in illustration, she has also diversified to offer a number of design services for both web and print.  Recent work includes UI design, brochures, magazines, email newsletters, social media artwork, logos, business cards, illustrations and photography.  She is also something of a wordsmith and regularly writes blogs, email newsletters and proof reads, ensuring that quality control is tight.
She's also a knitter and crafter who creates bespoke, handmade pieces that include homeware and fashion accessories.

In terms of bang for buck Katherine packs a massive punch. Her work is professional, meticulous and incredibly on point. Katherine has a great eye for detail and understands how to deliver the right feel for the brand. Katherine excels in illustrative design and bringing concepts to life but she has a wealth of other skills up her sleeve. We hired her for a logo and she now runs most of the business! A genuine asset in a World full of people talking the talk. I look forward to working more with Katherine.​​​​​​​

Katherine worked with me over several months to develop the look and feel of my brand. Her attention to detail and knowledge of current design trends brought a professional and contemporary edge to our visual material both online and in print. Not only has she had an impact visually on the brand, but she has also contributed to online content, writing blogs and putting together newsletter and social media campaigns. I am delighted with all that she has achieved thus far and will look for opportunities to work with her again in the future.

I briefed Kat in to help with our Christmas campaigns, after our first conversation I was assured that she could bring to life the vision we had. Her approach and design was faultless and she brought a real freshness (whilst maintaining our look and feel) to the brand. That was our brief and she also surpassed expectations by adding her magic.​​​​​​​
