Hello. I’m Kym, a senior designer with over 6 years industry experience, and living in Melbourne, Victoria. Good design should solve a problem, and make it easy to communicate.

My experience has seen me work internally for large corporations such as The National Gallery, London and Penguin Random House Australia (formally Penguin Books) in Melbourne, Victoria. I have a degree in Graphic Design & Multimedia from Charles Stuart University (Wagga Wagga).
When I am not designing you can find me with a sketchbook and watercolour in hand sitting on a footstep, urban sketching around various Melbourne locations and sometimes overseas. I am always on the lookout for the best chai tea, and enjoy living in city with laneways to explore.
Check out some of the projects in my portfolio to see what I’ve been up to lately.

  • Communication that doesn’t take a chance doesn’t stand a chance.

  • Technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity.

All design should be forged with passion, excellence & vision

As a designer it is my role to research, problem-solve, develop strategies, conceptualise, and think the design through each stage for the user.
