I am really feeling in the Christmas spirit now after completing another delightful festive job. London based design studio fivefootsix asked me to create some illustrative, hand drawn lettering for a very special poster to send out to their clients this Christmas.

I can finally reveal some delicious festive packaging I have created for high-end British supermarket, Waitrose. I was asked to design a series of illustrated Christmas letters to be used in store on packaging, point of sale, bags, Christmas cards and various festive gifts and homeware. So next time you are wandering the aisles of Waitrose, be sure to stock up on some yummy food and colourful gift ideas, illustrated by Kate!

The festive season is fast approaching and I have lots of Christmas illustrations to shout about this year. First up is a brand new ad campaign, created for the Edinburgh tourist board alongside Touch Studio in Scotland. Keep a look out for billboards and posters, adorned with my festive lettering and a lovely animated version here.

At long last you can feast your eyes on my latest range of chocolate bar wrappers and moulds created for Moonstruck. Again, in collaboration with the guys at Sandstrom Partners in Oregon, I designed this new range to describe the picturesque location of the popular brand. Based in the leafy city of Portland, Moonstruck are proud of their roots and wanted the wrappers to depict the bridge and countryside that surrounds them. This time round, I also got to design the bar moulds for the actual chocolate to be poured into. See more here.

I have been getting all inky in preparation for a print show and exhibition we are having at the beginning of November in Dubai. This week I have been working on a new and improved aqua version of the illustration 'Kiss.' This and many more will be available to buy at the show (more details to come) or you can order it online here.
Very soon I will be posting a brand new range of chocolate bars I illustrated for Moonstruck this year. Until I get hold of the photos, here is a sneak preview of the designs I came up with for the actual bar moulds. In collaboration with Sandstrom Partners in Oregon, we designed both the packaging and the chocolate bars themselves for Moonstruck's Classic range. Share if you dare...

I was asked by design studio Sandstrom Partners in Portland, Oregon, to create these three wrapper designs for Moonstruck Chocolate. The company specialise in handcrafted, exceptional looking chocolate. First on the shelves are these Single Origin bars, featuring my illustrations based on the exotic origins of the cocoa beans. More to come from Moonstruck soon! And also thanks to Grace at Design Sponge for blogging about my work and for everyone's kind words here.

Look out for a bit more paper cut magic in next month's Computer Arts Projects magazine which is out on the 28th January. The issue is all about handmade versus digital art and they are doing a feature on my work for John Lewis so they asked me to illustrate this double page in the same paper cut style. Enjoy!
