Book me directly!

Getting me on your project just got easier.

Throughout my career I have always strived to ensure that the passion and enthusiasm for my work has shone through, and despite my success as an independent designer, I achieve my greatest potential as part of a team. I have learnt that having a platform through which I can question and develop ideas can harness greater creativity - although bringing creative inspiration to life doesn’t come without its obstacles. Time management and working to tight deadlines are important in any industry, but the foundations and biggest challenges of design lie in communication. In my years of experience I have relished these challenges and used them to fuel my ambition and to maintain my own high standards.

Behind big glasses are eyes for pattern and detail. My experience means I know how to meticulously balance the hundreds of aesthetic elements and technical events required to make designs great, function well, and resonate with users.

Kate has always been a pleasure to work with. Her unique creative flair and ease to work with was very welcomed at Crew. A brilliant designer… Always proactive and thinking outside of the box. We were lucky to have her!

Annabelle Teale, Channel Marketing Manager at Crew Clothing Company

Kate has been a revelation for our company. We were looking for someone to provide us with a sophisticated new website design, but one which we could iterate and change content for as our business evolved. Kate heard the brief load and clear, and gave us something that was both creatively appealing and sufficiently flexible to enable the design to move with our business development. Since then we've involved her on ad hoc pieces of print and digital design work - it's always excellent, both visually and technically. But perhaps the best thing about working with Kate is that she is a great person. Always professional, but fun and easy to work with, even for those of us that have a non-existent design or tech background. She explains things well, isn't afraid to say she doesn't think something is a good idea and always has a far superior alternative suggestion.

Claire Jarvis, GM, HubBox

Having worked with Kate in previous roles I was thrilled to be able to bring her in on a project at Plumen. In my experience she is always quick to pick up the essence of a brand and has superb attention to detail. Her work is always of a high quality and delivered in good time. She is also just a pleasure to work with and makes everything very easy.
