Hiya

I’m a designer at heart and a problem-solver in the head.

With 10 years graphic design experience across multiple industries and channels I bring a broad skill set to any project.

In recent years have been focused on UX and UI, researching and designing products in health and fitness, technology, science and financial sectors. 

My aim is to deliver robust, user-centred solutions through up-to-date methods and tools. Bolstering my experience in design with a knowledge of technical requirements, user research and usability testing, which I enjoy doing way more than I thought I would!

I still undertake traditional design projects and am happy to chat through branding, packaging or web work. I love working with startups and revamping existing companies, brands and products.

Kay Cochrane UX Designer

What my clients said…

You could drop Kay into a jungle and she’d walk out wearing a leopard skin coat. Easily one of the most talented and proactive designers I’ve ever worked with. No matter the challenge, subject matter, or client, she delivers consistently outstanding outcomes and is a pleasure to work with at the same time.

Luke McKinney, Design Strategist & Client Partner at Nile HQ

Kay is a pleasure to work with, she brings a powerful blend of technical awareness and creativity that is an asset for any digital product team.

Neil Collman, Practice Director at Nile HQ

Kay has been great to work with. She is talented, skilled, and extremely reliable.

Richard Keeble, Director at Keeble Creative

Working with Kay has been both professional and inspiring. Her artistic talent, attention to detail and efficiency are both impressive and reassuring. Kay definitely masters good communication skills when discussing and exploring ideas and desired outcomes. A real pleasure to work with.

Kirsten McIntosh, Owner at Dragonfly

Kay is super professional and really understood exactly what we were thinking. She produced our logo quickly and the communication between us was great. We are so pleased with the final product.

Stephanie Bacon, Owner at The Wildflower

Dream designer to work with! We had Kay do our logo and merchandise design (used for stickers, t shirts and bigger signage), as well as paint a mural on the side of our cafe building.

Emma Robertson, Owner at Seapony Cafe

It was exceptionally easy to work with Kay. She was very open minded to what I had in mind and brought it to life with ease.
