We started Saint Friend to fill a little corner of the world with magic.
Where we can radiate that magic ever outward, through the work we do and the partnerships we build.

Here, you’ll always find a constructive, “yes, and” spirit. A belief that there’s room for everyone on the same page. Trust given freely. A way to see the world that finds opportunity in everything.

When we love the process of creating things together, people will love the things we create.
Our Team

Kate Carter
Co-Founder and Creative Director
Leader of design, art direction, and keeping Dolly Parton, Selena, Josean Log, E40, and Mariah Carey in our regular Spotify rotation. Outside the studio, Kate tackles interior design and renovations, brews her own kombucha, and instantly, deeply loves every dog she meets.

Nick Carter
Co-Founder and Creative Director
(Not that one.) Leads writing, strategy, and the studio’s jelly bean selection. When Nick isn’t Saint Friend-ing, he’s usually reading a book, writing a poem, daydreaming about playing the tuba, or perfectly dressing a salad.
Kayla
Kayla Winter
Designer
As the self-described snack enthusiast and supportive friend of our studio, Kayla views softness as a strength and listens to sad girl rock while in the zone. Obsessed with true crime and Star Trek, she lives her life with the north star “What would Captain Picard do?” In her free time, she cares for her lucky black cat Luna and creates intricate macrame hangings from her pull-up bar.
Clarissa
Clarissa Fedorovich
‍‍
Designer
You’ll find Clarissa in the studio jamming to Joni Mitchell’s Blue or one of her many chaotic playlists. She’s a lifelong dancer and lover of reality tv dating shows who reads a lot of Mary Oliver (“she just gets it”). When she’s not hanging out with her beloved fifteen pound cat Kevin, she spends her free time lounging beside the river and searching for Portland’s best bar fries. Hailing from a California beach town, Clarissa’s sunny outlook keeps our team smiling.
Maddie
Maddie Maschger
Copywriter
Guided by her Leo sun and midwestern sensibility, Maddie brightens any call or collaboration she's a part of. Some of her current interests include vintage bumper stickers, hunting for the city's best soy latte, and pouring over Taylor Swift conspiracy theories.
Riane
Riane Colquhoun
Strategy and Copywriting Intern
Riane is a double Aquarius, high glam dog mom to Finn, and lifelong fan of Dolly Parton. She grew up between the US and the land down under. When she’s not bringing sunshine to our small and mighty team with her whip-smart creative insights, she loves stirring a Negroni, cooking up a storm, and getting obsessed with her hobby of the month.
