I'm a designer, skier, cyclist, and mom with a massive passion for powerful visual storytelling and a desire to contribute positively to the world. There are few things that'll get me off my bike or skis and inside an office, and creating honest and brave visual brands for motivated do-gooders like you is at the top of the list!

My career in design began 13 years ago at a brilliant little stationery company called iota. Four years later, I moved on and opened a design studio with two partners. For almost eight years, I worked on countless branding and rebranding projects for all sorts of clients, from construction firms to cafés, bike shops to non-profit organizations. In 2016, I went solo and took my business online. And now, I'm using my design skills to help businesses and nonprofits on a mission to make the world a better place!


happy client comment


Kimi is a great listener, has a skilled eye for design and is extremely patient. Kimi took the time to get to know me and what I was looking to achieve in my business. She then translated my vision into something truly beautiful. Kimi is much more than a designer – she is a branding expert. If you’re looking for a partner to get your business visually off the ground, call her immediately!

the down low

Here's what you need to know about me -

I show up. I get things done. I am honest almost to a fault. I am not always perfectly primped and pretty. I've had a grey streak in my hair since I was in my twenties, and I can't bring myself to dye it, even though it's starting to take over my whole head. Living with joy, courage and kindness are hugely important to me. I love graphic design, almost as much as I love my family. Outside is my happy place, but reading a good book on the couch is nice, too. I care deeply people and the planet. I'm a recovering perfectionist. I believe that life is too short for any of us to spend it doing things that don't feed our souls.
