Go ahead, call me a Geek, although I prefer Goddess of Garamond (Stempel and Adobe). And if you have no idea what that means… that’s okay! My job is to make the design process as easy as possible – for you – as we head down this creative path together.

Trust me when I say, I love this business. I love the sumptuous texture of paper. I kern movie titles. I speak Helvetica fluently. And, though it may not be the stuff of dreams – I can make you a killer GRAPH.

I graduated from Art School in 1999, when Mac computers looked like blue spaceships, and the Internet was in diapers. In my world, PMS will always mean Pantone Matching System.

My creative portfolio is diversified, meaning I am confident from pixels to packaging – with a range that flows from designing your corporate logo – to your niece’s wedding invitation – to Photoshopping your ex-spouse out of a family photo. I’m that good.

I’m also a vege-fish-tarian, a rug-hooker, a sailor and a backyard farmer. My hair colour changes with the tide and I play guitar in an all-girl, er… all woman band.
But that’s another story.

What my clients say…

 

“It’s an absolute pleasure to work with Kate MacIntosh. Not only does she deliver a great product – crisp visuals, clear messaging, and creative flare – she communicates clearly, is well organized, and gets the job done on time. She’s always receptive to input and is also capable of carrying entire projects on her own.”

“I’ve been working with Mblem for just over a year now. Kate came highly recommended and I have never once been let down. She always delivers excellent creative within deadlines and in line with budget requirements. Kate played a huge part in the redesigning and rebranding of the mall’s aesthetic. She is professional and a blast to work with.”
Lindsay Stockall
Marketing Director, Sunnyside Mall

“I have been working with Kate Macintosh for the last 4 years, and in that time, I have had to rush edits to her for various shows and exhibitions. She has never let me down regarding my frantic cries for delivery. I continue to recommend Mblem to companies who have seen the artwork and exhibition promotions that Kate has designed for Geoforce Group and have now switch their business to using Kate’s exemplary artistic services and knowledge of how the customer wants to promote their product. Kate’s patience and keen eye for detail means that we will never be concerned that the finished product will meet or go beyond our expectations.”
