Hi there!


︎

My names Katie, KT or Special K and a cup of Tea. I’m a Kingston University, First Class trained problem solver/idea generator/visual communicator/graphic designer/game player/change maker, born and bred in South West London. So far in my career I have ventured into the world’s of Branding, Curation/Exhibition Design and now I have finally found my feet in Advertising.

    I’ve worked for a incredibly diverse set of brands including Greenpeace, GiffGaff, Stella McCartney, Uber, Wateraid and Youtube. From conceptualisation through to production; with work previously being displayed in Barcelona Design Museum during Barcelona Design Week.

    During this time, I have also developed a strong understanding in copy, curation and art direction, from writing briefs, drafting scripts, all the way to curating exhibitions and events. These works have taken place all over the world from London, Barcelona and Stockholm.
