Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
My design career is a bit of a mixed bag. I started working for agencies in Australia for clients such as Mossman, Veronika Maine, Gazman and Mercedes Benz. I freelanced for a year and then taught design at Holmesglen Tafe. Then moved away from the agency world and into in-house, design for a hair and beauty company called ‘Hairhouse Warehouse’, where my role transitioned from Senior Designer to Art Director. After 4 years I then worked for a social enterprise company called Thankyou working on package design, photoshoots and campaigns. On the side, I freelance and run a modern brush calligraphy business called Kyashi Writes where my clients vary from weddings, pop-up events as well as running workshops with Kikki.K and Lululemon.
