Brand Experience and Live Illustration

Hello. I’m Katie.

I specialise in live illustration. I draw huge designs on windows, paint tiny messages on mugs and everything in between.

Eco-friendliness as standard.

Helping you communicate clearly via the power of drawing

I support PR agencies and brands with experiential marketing, bold visual campaigns and creating inspiring content.

  • Product personalisation takes around 5 minutes per item. Designs are created and approved before the event. Eg. painting mugs, cups, clothing & accessories.

  • Window painting: I create the design, you sign it off, I turn up and paint it. You’ll be amazed at how much I can get done in one day of illustrating on windows! Please do get in touch with any questions and I can give a better estimate of timescale and costs.

Product customisation - Stella Artois

In 2018 I live illustrated for Stella Artois in Newcastle upon Tyne, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bristol and at Ascot Races.

I personalised each chalice in around 5 minutes or less. This included a hand-lettered name and/or message, as well as a small skyline or landmark illustration. (See images below). In 9 hours at Ascot races I personalised over 100 chalices.
