Kate Male

Graphic Designer & Creative Strategist

Hello, I’m Kate and I’m dedicated to helping entrepreneurs fluant what they’ve got! I don’t just design nice things to look at; that’s what art galleries are for. I make sure every piece of design I create for my clients aligns to their core business objectives, speaks to their audience and looks good in the process.

I’ve spent over a decade in the design industry and have worked with clients all over the world; from ambitious start-ups to fully established business owners that are looking to take their business to the next level.

My work with entrepreneurs allows them to stay focused, consistent and on track to ensure they not only achieve their goals but smash through their targets as a business owner… because we are all visionaries at the end of the day!

“Graphic design without strategy is just art. Creative Strategy gives direction to a business.”

My Values

My Mission

I have worked with many entrepreneurs; some who were at the very beginning of their journey as business owners, and are full of start-up energy to those who are running well established businesses and are teeming with ambitious ideas to take their business to the next level!

I absolutely love what I do and take great pride in making my clients look, sound and feel confident in  their business. I always aim to position them as ‘the best’ in their respective markets, making them irresistible to their audience by really honing in on their what their business stands for.

My 360 approach to Business & Design

Big expensive agencies often use a tactical approach rather than a strategic one. This means that if you ask for a new website you will receive a something pretty and attractive, but maybe lacking cohesion with your existing brand – without a strategy behind it that’s all it is, just ‘pretty’.

Many business owners struggle to have a 360 view of ‘why’ they need a new logo, website or be active on social media. They know the milestones they need to reach but they don’t know ‘why’ they need it or ‘how’ to get there?

I work to a strong strategic framework that my clients can apply to all aspects of their business for years to come. I help them better understand their why, who, what and how. Because if they clearly know the answers to these questions then their marketing efforts will become more effective, their branding will stand out, they’ll have more confidence. As a result their audience will move heaven and earth to purchase/work with them.

I listen first...

I’ve always lived by the notion of listen closely and question last. I’ve always been happy to lend my ear to many of my clients’ business concerns over the years and I’ve noticed a common pain point among business owners no matter how big or small they are – which is usually along the lines of “I’m struggling to stand out. I’m doing everything I can think of but I’m still so busy I barely have a home life.”

I understand how much effort goes into running a business, making it successful and trying to have a family life in between. I believe running a business should be fun, exciting and stress-free. Trust me, it is more than acheivable!

Impeccable Design

Whether you’ve got a small or big budget, making sure you get your branding right at the start will encourage people to take you seriously from the get-go. I design impeccably timeless and memorable brands that are irresistible to your audience. You deserve a brand that will grow with your business and that you and your team can can manage in-house.

Making that investment in your image reaps great, long-lasting results and can take your business to new levels of success.

Tea or Coffee

Coffee

My favourite coffee is from Almeria, Spain, from a little shop owner in the local Pueblo near my families home. I have stocks full of it here in London. He also makes his own coffee chocolate from the beans!

Zombie movie or Rom Com

Zombie, Aliens, ghosts... anything in the horror catagory

I'm one of those weird people that loves to be scared! My favourite scary movie is Aliens. I don't think it's that scary I just love 80's!

Introvert or Extrovert

Introvert

That doesn't mean to say I'm shy and quiet. I love a good chat and enjoy listening to people! I love spending time with friends and family and I also love quiet me time too!

A little Fact About Me...

Prior to 3 and a bit years ago, I had lived in Thailand for nearly 10 years. My Fiancé landed a job in Bangkok, so we packed up and hauled what little belongings we had across the globe. I had no idea what I was going to do but I plucked up the courage try my hand at freelancing.

I had no idea how I was going to do it as I couldn’t speak Thai, but I made it my priority to build relationships and it all worked out! The best years of my life so far!
