We’re a graphic design studio specialising in commercial design for corporate, professional services, mining and resources, retail and manufacturing clients.

Bluekat Creative was founded by Kate Rainbird in 2007. Graduating with a Bachelor of Graphic Design from the University of Newcastle in 1998, Kate spent a decade working as a graphic designer in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Perth and London (where she was lead designer for the 2007 Tour de France Le Grand Depart) before establishing her own business. Working both agency-side and in-house has given her a sound understanding of both the creative process and the inner workings of the business world. Now based in Hobart, Kate provides design services to clients all over Australia.

These are the things that define our business.

We’re talented, but we don’t just make pretty pictures. We understand marketing and we can write as well as draw. We are smart – we think laterally and grasp things quickly. We’re great at solving problems. And we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.

We are flexible because we are small. We work when there is work to be done, accommodate our clients’ changing needs and meet their deadlines.

We’re realists. We design to suit our clients and their clients, not to suit ourselves. We listen to what our clients tell us about their businesses, give them professional, genuine and helpful advice and always respect and accept their feedback.

We turn things around quickly. We don’t waste time or money. We are productive and organised, and we don’t cut corners.

We are qualified, experienced designers who keep up to date with emerging trends and technologies in our profession and focus on continuous improvement through training and building relationships with other creative professionals.

We’re friendly and down-to-earth, and we make it enjoyable and easy for people to do business with us.

We’re honest with our clients. We’re upfront about our charges, and we keep them informed of changing costs. We do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it, and if there’s a problem, we tell them about it and we fix it.
