ABOUT

Hello! I'm Kate and I design digital experiences with a strong focus on beautiful interface design, user experience, and brand strategy. I work with people to bring ideas to life, help achieve goals and solve problems through good design.

At Nurun, I collaborate everyday with a fantastic team of visual and interaction designers, striving to create great online shopping experiences for users. We make design decisions based on a strong understanding of user needs, brand strategy, design integrity, while ensuring a seamless experience is delivered across all devices.

Freelance projects allow me to work closely with my own clients to create a product they are happy with and achieves their goals. As a designer, I know the right questions to ask to really understand the client’s needs and objectives.

The Attendant

Responsive web app UI design

Created with Adrian MacLeod during one of Nurun’s PureHacks hackathons, The Attendant is a simple yet effective solution to the everyday problem of bathroom roulette in our office. A wireless device monitors the availability of the bathroom stall in the men’s room at Nurun and displays the status through a responsive web app. Read more about this project here.

Lavish & Squalor

Homepage redesign (personal project)

A local favourite clothing store and coffee bar which I've always felt had much potential for a killer website and online shop. Leveraged their existing logo and translated in-store branding into a homepage with the intent to entice customers to visit the store or purchase products online.

Website design & development

The owner of this boutique bakery asked me to come up with branding that was elegant, feminine and Parisian-themed, as well as a website that had the look and feel of a storefront and focused on her beautiful product photography.

Grand Electric

Website redesign (personal project)

I decided this Mexican hotspot could use a site overhaul. I kept the eccentric background, added some textures, food photos and compiled the important info on their existing site into a single page design.
