Practice Parters, Simon, Kate and Anabel Darby


Kate Darby is a skilled designer, with an Honors Degree in Design from Massey University in Wellington. Kate provides a fresh creative perspective with her design and strong story development.

Kate brings experience from outside the practice too. As part of a Wellington creative team at RESN, Kate worked as a design intern on a major US digital consumer advertising campaign with international agencies. Her ability to slot into complex roles quickly illustrates the depth of her skill and experience. Kate also works with Anabel on large scale communications projects, bringing with her social media and project management skills.

Kate is well travelled, and draws inspiration from the countries she has visited and lived in. Born in Sydney, Kate has called seven other cities home in Asia, North America, Europe, and her current residence, New Zealand.

Kate hosts The Design Kids Christchurch chapter, and is a consulting facilitator to the design school at the Ara Institute of Canterbury.

Kate is a co-founder of Dovetail X, a platform for assembling creative and tech teams to collaborate with.
