"Kate has been a GODSEND. We set out on a huge project to rebrand our agency, update current / create new logos, and completely overhaul three complex and interconnected sites.

Kate is an expert collaborator, and made us feel so taken care of. Our assets are absolutely gorgeous, and Kate will now be on speed dial for all future website and design support!!"
