FINDING THE RIGHT GRAPHIC DESIGNER CAN BE A FRUSTRATING TASK.
You want someone talented, but not pretentious. Professional, but not prohibitively expensive. Proactive, but willing to listen. And here you are.
Bluekat was founded in 2007 by me – Kate Rainbird. I hold a Bachelor of Graphic Design and have worked throughout Australia and in London, where I was the lead designer on the Tour de France Le Grand Depart. I’m now based in Hobart, but my clients are all over Australia.
With more than 20 years’ experience as a graphic designer, including in design studios as well as in-house for large corporate and government clients, I have unique insight into both the creative process and the inner workings of the business world.
I believe that the best design outcomes are achieved via a direct relationship between the designer and the client – so no account managers.
I work when there is work to be done, giving you flexibility and reliability when deadlines loom.
My skills extend beyond design to marketing strategy, copywriting and editing, and many of my long-term clients rely on me for a full-service approach that includes marketing and writing support. And with access to a trusted, experienced team of creative professionals and suppliers who have worked with me for many years, I have the resources to manage projects of any scale.
I’m focused on building lasting partnerships with my clients and helping them achieve what is most important to them, whether that’s building a brand, increasing sales or communicating with stakeholders.
THE THINGS BLUEKAT DOES BEST.
Andra Bite Consulting,
Kate is not only a talented designer, she is immensely efficient and diligent. I rely heavily on her for strategic client planning, where she excels. I thank my lucky stars every day for the opportunity to work with her.
Kate from Bluekat is incredibly reliable and always delivers on brief. She has been my preferred designer for four years and I can’t recommend her strongly enough – she just gets what we’re after, every time.
Kate does a fantastic job and is integral to getting our annual report and results across the line on time. She handles all our late requests and puts in long and late nights, plus weekend work which is all very much appreciated.
The Useful Crew,
Kate developed our new brand identity in record time, and we absolutely love it. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, responsive and professional graphic designer.
Marketwise Marketing & Communications,
Kate is easy to work with, has great ideas and is a good listener. I love her ability to interpret the brief and turn it into great work. Kate always does an incredible job within the required timeframe and at a great price.
Bathroomware House Group,
Kate is highly professional and has worked on many projects for us, from simple ads to entire website redesigns. She delivers stunning work even with our (sometimes) minimal briefs, and we couldn’t operate without her input.
The Uniform Edit,
The Uniform Edit has a long history with Bluekat and couldn’t live without Kate, who works with us to achieve our marketing and branding goals and always blows us away with her creativity and thoroughness.
Sealy Asia Pacific,
Kate is an experienced and professional graphic designer, and we have worked with her for more than 10 years. She transforms verbalised concepts into high quality, impressive designs that never fail to exceed our expectations.
