About me
Hi. 👀 This is K. I'm a design leader and manager with a non-linear career journey and a love for cats and bread. I help elevate brands to the next level through design, vision and strategy. In a world oversaturated with noise, I’m on a mission to add more clarity, purpose and joy.

  • Courier Media
    Courier MediaI worked at the helm of creativity across Courier leading a team of 5 core creatives and numerous external talent. Under my direction, we produced our bi-monthly magazine – featuring stories of small businesses from around the world; printed guides – like the latest How to Start and Grow a Business; large-scale commercial projects across digital, print and film for brands such as Mailchimp and Instagram. And a vast range of digital output across websites, newsletters, social and film.
  • AllBright
    AllBrightAs Design Director at AllBright I helped pivot the business to digital first. I oversaw the direction of a highly-rated members' app in a 5-week turnaround, that led to a 900% membership increase in the first month. Simultaneously I implemented a new creative strategy and design refresh, making sure that the brand develops with the pace of the digital transformation. This resulted in boosting brand recognition and user loyalty over a staged 6-month rollout period. I led the design team as well
