Kira brings a wealth of talent and experience from both an international and local design industry background. As Sauce Design’s company Director, a key part of her role is business management; coordinating overall creative and administrative project management. Kira’s decisive direction ensures smooth production practice, and solutions that meet and exceed expectations.
Kira has a true passion for professional design, developing high-end publications, national graphic campaigns, and design for both local and international clients. Formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Design (Industrial) at Newcastle University, and many years within the design industry as well as formal teaching have exposed her to a vast range of projects—from the smallest logo to the most in-depth corporate branding. Experience in Industrial Design and the fields of 2D, 3D Design, Interior and Multimedia, offers clients a wealth of knowledge and skill.
Coupled with her passion and experience is Kira’s inherent commitment to creativity, which ensures that the unique elements of each project are taken into consideration during the design process. This results in Kira’s delivery of an exceptional look and feel which is tailored to meet the individual client needs.
When not stirring the creative juices, Kira can often be found offering out fresh produce from the garden, experimenting with home-made bread, or hovering over an exotic recipe. Everything improves with a little Sauce, and if you happen to like wontons or pot stickers, she’s quite good at whipping those up as well.
