Hey, I’m Grace. I’m a Melbourne-based designer specialising in brand, motion and design systems. I’m passionate about design and using it to solve business challenges. I hold an honours degree in communication design (BA Hons, First Class) from Swinburne University of Technology and over the years have worked in non-profit, cultural and commercial sectors.

  Above all, I enjoy working with people who are open and collaborative. I believe design is most effective when it distils messaging into its simplest form and promotes accessibility. Outside of design, you can find me listening to a Talking Heads album, playing guitar or enjoying popcorn at the movies.

Occasionally I welcome freelance projects. If you’d like to speak about working together you can reach me at gracekirbydesign@gmail.com.
