Hello, my name is Kay! I am Graphic Artist with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design - specialist subjects are Branding, Editorial Design, Social Media Marketing and Graphic Design. My client list includes, Land Rover, Boots, Virgin Atlantic and IKEA. Whilst at university, I worked on a self-directed publication, which was stocked in various stores around London such as, Selfridges WHSmith and Serpentine Gallery. Currently I am working as a full time Graphic Designer for Zed Creative. I also work as a freelance creative for TEDx Euston, as well as working on a self-directed project titled Olga & Kay, alongside my creative partner. Olga & Kay have recently partnered up with Westminster City Council and Bright Ideas Trust, which allows us to speak at a number of schools within London, as well as conducting workshops to over 500 students. We're delighted to say that we've been invited to speak at Westminster Enterprise Week 2017 in November, for a second year running. Over 2,800 students will be in attendance.Locked Pro Plan feature
Currently working on an editorial project for start-up company, and I'm also working on a rebranding project for a bespoke rucksack company based in Shoreditch, London. See kieronlewis.com for more info.
Olga Kott and I are two creatives from different disciplines. Specialising within photography, Olga has a wealth of experience working on projects for Reebok, Bjork and Herschel. With the combination of her background, as well as my own, we have the vision of wanting to produce exciting work which will document both our interest in understanding the way people interact through culture and lifestyle. Despite having our freelance commitments, we find time to come together and work on self-directed briefs. Our most recent project was for the National Portrait Gallery (South of the River project). As the new year approaches, we are currently working on documenting the space around and within bespoke coffee shops around particular areas of London. In November, we had the opportunity to speak at Westminster Academy Year 11’s, as part of Westminster City Council’s Enterprise Week. The talk covered the importance of self-directed projects. We also conducted a creative workshop to 100+ students, which was such a success that we’ve been asked to come back again in February. Barclays will be sponsoring the event.
I worked as the sole Designer within a marketing team in Putney, London. I was responsible for all graphic output of the company, as well as its partner brand Polo Valley, whether it was digital or print.
I am an active volunteer in a people powered monthly street market that celebrates the talent and creative community in my neighbourhood in South East London. Since February, I have been made responsible for the look and feel of Feast. See westnorwoodfeast.com for more info.
Recently I was working at LIDA/M&C Saatchi as their Junior Designer. Whist working closely alongside the Head of Design, I worked on a number of exciting client briefs including IKEA, Compare the Market, John Lewis, Virgin Atlantic, Natwest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Boots, National Trust, Alzheimer’s Society and Land Rover.
I worked within IPC Media’s Creative department working on various magazine spreads for Women and Women’s Weekly magazine.
Whilst working with the Truth team, I worked on a number of successful projects for brands such as, Samsung, The Post Office, Barclays, TK Maxx & Spotify.
I worked on a number of exciting projects for clients such as Bentley, Royal Air Maroc and Thomson Reuters.
I worked on a number of team-based projects with the Digital Department for a variety of brands including: Miss Dior, Tag Heuer, MasterCard, JP Morgan and Nestle. Invaluable experience of working on “real projects” as part of an agency team in a pressure situation.
