Kate Hursthouse is a freelance Hand Lettering Designer & Illustrator from Auckland

Kia ora I'm Kate! I am a designer, illustrator and artist based in Auckland, New Zealand working on branding, custom hand lettering, commercial illustrations and graphic design.
I have worked in the creative industries since 2010 and established my own freelance business in 2014.
Over the last decade I have created contemporary artworks, illustrations, hand-painted murals and an illustrated children’s book for a range of clients including Women Magazine, Karen Walker Ltd, Spark NZ, ASB Bank, Splore Festival, Eden Park Trust, Lululemon, and Xero.

I love working with brands and agencies to create custom hand lettering illustrations and typographic designs that add a unique, human centred element to branding, advertising campaigns, editorials or books.
