Kayla Cherkas


Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.



I’m Kayla, a passionate and creative digital designer and project manager. Art and managing things (I’m the oldest child) has always been an obsession of mine and I’ve been creating since before I can remember. Naturally, it’s something I wanted to do for the rest of my life so to get my career going, I started by building a strong education foundation with studies in business and digital design. Next, I worked with several well-developed digital agencies to grow my skills and portfolio learning from the best in the business. Now, I’m branching out into the freelance world to serve you!

My philosophy - no matter the medium - is that simplicity is key. Our day to day lives can be crazy and hectic enough as is, so why should design or management feed into that? I believe it should support your daily life by being simple, consistent and flexible.

My unique skills in digital project management, website design and digital design give me the tools to be my own boss. My bread and butter include:

  • Logo design and branding

  • Building beautiful and user-friendly websites through Squarespace

  • Managing social media services for small businesses

  • Digital project management

When I’m not managing projects or drawing, I can be found reading, Ukrainian dancing, dreaming of travelling or cuddling with my two Bengals. They’re pretty wild.
