Kinsman Design provides a range of services, including graphics and communications design, writing, editing, book design, and publication assistance.

She holds a degree in B.A. in Design from Southern Illinois University, where her unique educational experience awakened a deep passion for education and human learning.

Carolyn was one of the trainers at Camp Crozier in Puerto Rico when I was a Peace Corps Trainee in 1965. She was a fabulously wonderful person, warm, kind and very helpful.
