Owner and Creative Strategist
Katie is a qualified Industrial Designer who is fascinated by people and how they interact with products and brands. Her life has been full of curious contradictions, a condition she finds comfortable. A vegetarian who grew up on a farm. An engineer who uses empathic sensitivity to bring products to life. A believer in beauty and non-conformity who understands the place and value of commercial viability.
Katie comes from entrepreneurial roots and is not intimidated by making off-the-wall ideas work.
What you really need to know is this: Katie understands the power of human connections and recognises that our wobbly bits, imperfections as well as our artistry are the very things that help us to connect.
