Katie

Graphic Designer / Director

I started in this field working as a Mac Operator for a printing company. I then developed a passion for graphic design and went out on my own in 2001, creating KT Design. I have spent these past years building up a strong client base and an excellent team of talented staff.

I am creative and passionate about all aspects of design and have always enjoyed an acute sense of visual aesthetics. I strive to ensure that all work out of KT Design is of an extremely high standard.

I believe that good work ethic and building strong relationships with our clients is the key to ensuring a successful collaboration on any projects undertaken.

Margaret

Business Manager/Graphic Designer

BMA (Digital)

I joined KT Design in 2011 as a graphic designer, and in early 2012 became business manager. I love the fact that my work is my hobby, and that the team, the working environment and clients we have here are exceptional!

As for my graphic design background…after completing the Bachelor of Media Arts degree at Wintec in 2005, I worked as a print and motion graphics designer with Opus International Consultants, a global engineering consultancy firm. I then went on to work for a digital media agency, where I specialised in web and social media design, working on large database-driven projects, as well as SME websites.

Prior to all of the above, I have worked as a photographer, picture framer, and in accounts for Hamilton City Buses (now Go Bus).

Tori

Graphic Designer

BMA (Design)

After gaining a Bachelor of Media Arts degree at Wintec in 2008, I started working as an in-house graphic designer for a handful of companies, as well as volunteering for a charitable organisation. During this time I gained valuable experience in brand identity, consistency and creativity. I joined the KT Design team at the beginning of 2012, and it has been great working in a creative environment with other talented designers.

I love to draw, paint, craft and generally do things “by hand” as much as possible. I collect old books, all things geometric and succulents. You can have peak at some of my personal projects on my blog.

Ellie

Graphic Designer

BMA (Design)

In 2010 I graduated top of my class from Wintec with a Bachelor of Media Arts, majoring in graphic design. I started working immediately at a Queenstown design agency on a short-term contract for the opening of the Hilton Hotel and other big brand projects. After my contract was up I moved to Mount Maunganui where I worked for two years at a small boutique agency. These agencies gave me great experience working on a vast range of projects including branding, print, layout projects and web design.

I came back to Hamilton in 2013 to further my career in the design world. I started at KT Design in 2014 as I wanted to work with other creative people like myself, and I’m loving every minute of it!

Outside of work I enjoy going out and socialising with family and friends, travelling and exploring, keeping fit, collecting vintage and secondhand goods, hanging with my cat Ollie and drinking great coffee and wine!

Sherece

Graphic Designer

Design – MacEwan University, Canada

A Canadian abroad, I arrived in New Zealand on a working holiday visa in June of 2016, joining the team at KT Design in July.

In 2013, I graduated from the Design Studies program at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. Over the last three years, I have worked in a number of different capacities, including catalogue media, report layout, digital illustration, and studio photography. I take pride in being a jack of all trades, and am always eager to master a new skill. My strengths lie in ambition, curiosity, and a relentless desire to learn.

I’m also very keen on hiking, Wes Anderson films, live music, and tattoos.
