Kind Designs is a collaboration between me and my husband, Michael Holt, who is a furniture upholsterer.
We design and handcraft a range of high quality eco-friendly and cruelty-free handbags, cushions and napery from high-quality upholstery grade upcycled and eco fabrics and materials such as natural hemp, organic cotton and linen, ensuring durability and longevity. We do not use any animal products.
I have set up several usable Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel templates throughout my career, creating and designing easy to use templates that include styles and themes to comply with branding guidelines.
Most recently, I set up easy to use, functional form, report, fact sheet and letterhead templates in Microsoft Word, and some PowerPoint and Excel templates for ReturnToWorkSA (formerly WorkCover SA) based on their new branding guidelines.
My husband is a 4th generation upholsterer. The family business, H. Holt & Sons Upholsterers, required new business cards, so I took the opportunity to design a logo for them, as well as professional stationery and a website.
They were after a text-based logo with a traditional look and feel.
I also provided the full website package – web design, web development, photography as well as writing the content.
