Heya, I’m Kate - letterer, illustrator and worrier. After studying graphic design I now work mainly in the world of hand lettering and illustration, with jobs encompassing everything from murals, to installations, to branding and packaging design. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working for clients like the Melbourne Theatre Company, The Body Shop, and Hardie Grant Publishing.
I’m a little obsessed with my dog (he’s an English staffordshire terrier named Vince) and Covid meant that I fell into the cliche of planting herbs, but its actually made me feel a tiny bit adulty
I’m passionate about discussing mental health and moving closer to gender equality, and one of the things I love most about my work is that it allows me to work through some of life’s tricky bits whilst connecting with others who are wading through similar mud.
I’m Lou. I’d like to say I’m a complex human being who often contemplates existential issues, but really my biggest problems consist of what font size to use and where to holiday next. In a nutshell, I love design, making cool stuff with our creatives and drawing silly things.
I also love to use my work as a vehicle for creating change, in a joyful way. I’ve designed for the likes of Thankyou, Who Gives A Crap, Vinomofo and Frank Green.
In the past, I’ve curated events that are both experiential and playful, like Water. An exhibition for change where we created an urban art jungle that raised money, and awareness, about access to clean drinking water.
