I pride myself on producing striking, detail-led design for clients ranging from household names like Universal Music and Playstation to start-ups and social enterprises.
Although most of my work involves creating and reinventing brand identities, I’m also an accomplished creative director, illustrator, occasional painter and a miniature-maker. I offer a range of services from establishing your brand’s visual voice with logo and asset design to overall creative direction for media productions – music videos, short promotional films and more.
I started my career at an advertising agency in my native Switzerland, then rose through the ranks to become Head of Creative at a leading Brighton design agency. I went freelance in 2011 to allow me to be more flexible around my family and I now work for a range of UK and international clients from my studio just outside York.
When I’m not at my Mac, you’ll find me stripping wallpaper, volunteering at our local community shop and obsessing over vintage typography.
I love the potential of a blank page and believe that anything is possible with a good coffee in hand. GET IN TOUCH

BUT… I also help ladies regain their confidence and feel amazing using colour.
I hangout online at MamaLippys Beauty Lounge – Colour, Makeup, Skincare & Image for ladies 40+ – why not come over & join us!

I’m Katy Garner, a holistic mind body coach, hypnotherapist & fertility yoga teacher.
My TTC journey began 12 years ago at the age of 30.
I’ve had 4 miscarriages, one failed round of IVF & have 1 Fallopian tube remaining
Due to my chromosomal abnormality & my age, my chances of having my own biological baby now are teeny tiny!
If I had known long ago what I know now, I could have got through those many two week waits with a some sanity in tact, saved myself years of mental & emotional torture
& lived my life freely instead of waiting for the baby to magically appear & ‘make me better’
On the other hand, I would also not have become an Advanced Hypnotherapist, wellness Coach, or a 500hrRYT specialising in fertility Yoga
… and I would not currently be here, ready and eager to help you!
I can help you nourish your body, rewire your mind & harness your thoughts & emotions to have regain control & have an empowered & positive TWW & TTC experience
I can’t guarantee a baby – but I can equip you with a strong resilience and a peace of mind that assures you feel once again like the capable, competent woman you know you are
When you’re looking for support from someone who knows what it’s like to walk in your shoes, I can help
