Kate Moross

Award-winning multi-tasking illustrator, art director, director and designer Kate Moross burst on to the creative scene back in 2008 when her love for colour and energetic squiggles caught the eye of anyone and everyone, spawning a host of imitators and propelling her to be one of the most sought after collaborators in the design world.

Since then Kate has spent her time applying her magic touch to music videos, textiles, identities, murals, fashion and magazine covers for big-time publications. Recently Studio Moross - which she set up to focus on branding, art direction and commercial projects - created the much talked-about tour visuals for One Direction. Despite her busy schedule, Kate always making time to put on her own solo shows and give some sit-up-in-your-seat lectures to large audiences - often bemoaning the overuse of the word "inspiration".

People love Kate because she unapologetically works for what she truly believes in. She pretty much is colour. She loves sweet packaging, dogs, pizza, stickers, knick-knacks, trainers and clothes. She's the real deal, and that's why everyone wants to work with her, to get their hands on a slice of her cheeky, infectious magic.
