My name is Kate Maxwell, I'm a freelance Illustrator and Design graduate with over 15 years creative experience specialising in creating products for children including publishing, toys and stationary design.

Design skills include magazine and book design, brand development in publishing and the toy industry. Whilst working at BBC Worldwide I was awarded Designer of the Year 2010 and continued to design and art directed numerous magazines whilst working there until I became freelance in 2012.

My illustration skills include character development - vector based and freehand. You can see my current illustrations on a variety of toy designs created for Le Toy Van here: http://www.letoyvan.com/ I also design artwork for greetings cards, stationery, editorial and small businesses all of which will be coming out this year.

I'm an avid print maker, particulary screen printing. A technique I love and have been using since art college. My limited edition prints are available to purchase at my online store here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DesignandDraw I am currently taking commissions. My prints are currently stocked in a number of small stores with the widest range available at The Farnham Maltings https://farnhammaltings.com/museum/museum-shop/
