Hello.

I'm Karen, a graphic designer from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Since graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Communications with Honours in 2009 from the University of Tasmania, I have managed my own design studio, working on a wide variety of projects from festivals and events to corporate communications. I am experienced in print design, branding and promotions.

From 2010–2013, I lectured and tutored Visual Communication and Narrative Illustration at the University of Tasmania, College of the Arts.

In 2014–2015, I moved to the UK and worked for Oliver Marketing on the PepsiCo UK account, designing for brands such as Doritos, Walkers Crisps, Tropicana and Quaker Oats.

I have worked for ad agency Redjelly Australia since 2011, first as a freelancer, then taking a permanent position as Senior Designer in 2016 and promoted to Junior Art Director in 2018.

Design and theatre are two of my greatest passions. As well as performing in local productions, I have produced eight musicals in Hobart with my theatre company Bijou Creative; The Boy Friend, Little Women, Ordinary Days, The Hatpin, Heathers, Chicago, Ruthless! and Sweeney Todd.
