The Big Team
We collaborate with some very talented and experienced strategists who are awesome at what they do, and together we create big things for clients.
Lisa Reed – A Little Ray of Sunshine | Business Strategist & Consultant
Kim Wood of 485 Design is one creative lady who manages to take a rich wordy verbal brief about a business’s position and direction from me and turn it into a powerful communication. Whether it be a full branding exercise or taking a brand look and applying it in print or digital form, Kim can simply nail it for me.
I’ve had the pleasure of testing her skills many times over in the last 5+ years and the strength of our working relationship is cemented. It is with great ease that I can direct my client projects to her and know the outcome will be successful. I’m very blessed to have such a supportive working relationship with a designer that helps me do what I do.
Lorelei Campbell – Hola PR | Public Relations & Copywriter
Kim Wood and the 485 team are our go to for all things design. We have worked with Kim for over 5 years now and her attention to detail, eye for good design and ability to distill a clients brief into a workable design is second to none. We love working with Kim on projects big and small and being part of her big team!
Kim is able to take our words and ideas and pull them into design that applies across all mediums – whether traditional print or online. Our strong working relationship means Kim’s advice and abilities are always just a phone or skype call away and working with Kim and her clients is always such a pleasure.
Brendan Tully – The Search Engine Shop | SEO, Web development & Online Marketing Strategy
Kim is the first person I call when we need serious design muscle! There is a big difference between someone who can design something that looks good and someone who can design and build something, that not only looks fantastic, but also works from a commercial and business perspective. Not only that, when we work on web design projects, the end result and design just feels good too.
Its her unique combination of business acumen, years of commercial design and branding experience coupled with a very strong design eye that makes all the difference. She makes my life easy – when we work with Kim on any project I know that design is totally taken care freeing me and my team up to focus on what we’re good at.
Matt Reed – Photography Project | Commercial Photographer & Video
Working with Kim at 485 Design is a win win for us. We are provided with a tight brief… we know exactly what’s needed for her projects. This makes it possible to nail the photography for both Kim and her clients. This results in happy clients all round and a polished and professional finished project.
As an added bonus for us, Kim makes our photos look even better once they are sitting perfectly in their finished applications. We love this! Being a commercial photographer, I too care about business so there is nothing more satisfying than seeing a company’s marketing beautifully come together. Kim nails it every time.
