I have had the pleasure of working with Kate on two projects, the first was for the branding of my art consultancy. Kate was spot on in interpreting my brief and recommending marketing solutions.
My colleagues in the arts industry and business partners have all been suitably impressed. I had no hesitation in briefing Kate on a project for a contemporary arts festival in Byron Bay. The brand positioning will no doubt impress potential investors!
