Behind the Designs

The woman behind the designs – a note from Kim Last

Hi, and thanks for visiting us. As a graphic designer, and the owner of KILA Designs, I’m passionate about delivering creative design solutions, big and small. I have a Diploma in Graphic Design and Multimedia, and 18 years experience in the industry, with a strong focus on advertising and publishing. Some key brands I have worked for are Pacific Magazines and Universal Magazines, on titles including: That’s Life, For Me, Complete Wedding Sydney, Australian Country Collections, Homespun, Wellbeing, Handmade, and Australian Patchwork & Quilting.

I started KILA designs to fuel my love for design, and allow me to balance work and family life. In January 2013 I also became an independent author, and I have since published four novels, a novela, and a non-fiction colouring journal. This experience has brought with it a passion for book cover design, and I have changed the focus of my business with the aim of helping other independent authors achieve their dreams. I enjoy working closely with all my clients to bring their visions to life.

KILA Designs is constantly evolving, my gorgeous kids are always growing, and my husband remains an amazing support. There are good things to come for KILA Designs, and I am eager to see what lies on the horizon.
