The lady behind the Desk
Hello! My name is Kate; I am happy to welcome you to Design Desk Live, where I help you with your logo design and/or web design needs, live and wherever you are!
As a designer I have been helping customers from around the globe for the last 20 years, mostly behind a computer desk and reachable via email. I love what I do and most importantly that I can do it from anywhere in the world. However I wonder why designers like myself are often inaccessible to our clients in this increasingly digitalized world? The internet gives us everything within the comfort of our home while it takes away the human touch and in its place, algorithm. In the spirit of Be the Change You Want to See in the World I vow to do MORE this year with a brand new approach to my design practice - Design Desk Live.
Imagine Design Desk Live like the corner shop nudged between the Cafe and the Deli that you stumble across on your way to work. Remember the time we knock on the door with a smile and talk to a REAL PERSON for what we need? Come on in and say Hi, the lady behind the desk won’t bite! AND I promise to do my best to LISTEN and HELP you with all your DESIGN PROBLEMS, big or small. With a click of a button (on the lower right corner of this page) a chat is on - while we may both be sipping coffee in our PJs, let me be your personal Design Desk today.
My mission - offer my design services with a real HUMAN touch. It’s that simple. So please stick around and let’s chat!
