what we're about

Your new branding besties.

Whatever your passion – be it your lifestyle brand, small business, the cookbook you’re writing or your nutrition blog – it’s an exciting time to be a creative. With so many platforms on which to share your content (print, social media, online and more) there’s never been so much opportunity to connect with a really targeted audience. We, at Kady Creative, know that sometimes this can also be a little overwhelming. The standards of branding material are on the rise (think the images on your Instagram feed or words on your website)… along with your audience’s expectations. There’s no denying it takes a little extra sparkle these days to stand out from the crowd.

At Kady Creative, we’ve worked with some of Australia’s favourite lifestyle brands helping them nail their brand strategy through brand design, ebooks, cookbooks and more.

You might be starting a business from scratch, or maybe your existing brand needs a makeover. Perhaps you’re writing a book or creating a wellness brand? Whatever your passion project, there’s a package available to suit you. Kady has hand-picked designers, photographers, wordsmiths and stylists, who will work with you to fully understand the ethos, heart and soul of your brand, building a strategy that reflects it perfectly. We aim to provide stunning, on-trend aesthetics (with plenty of unique character) that are consistent across all mediums, while empowering you with simple-to-use communication tools. Basically, we take the hard work out of your marketing and let you focus on your strengths – trust us, it makes discovering your dream clients a whole lot easier.

Happy Clients

Kady is creative, efficient and amazing at managing even the tightest deadlines. She is incredibly easy to work with and always manages to create exactly what i’m envisioning; she’s designed my blogging material, logo and wedding website -very diverse projects – and each has been exactly what i asked for.


My experience with working with Kady on my branding and website design has been nothing short of amazing. Kady not only replicated my ideas but went above and beyond to develop an incredible brand and beautiful website. I have received nothing but compliments of my website which is the key to the development of my new business. Kady’s vibrant and warming personality makes working with her so easy. I am so impressed with the outcome, thank you Kady – Excellent Work!


The ebook I created with my 12 year old son, Orlando, REAL FOOD FOR HUNGRY TEENS, was very close to my heart. It was important that the design, photography and styling reflected the vision we had for promoting healthy food for busy teens, and Kady O’Connell certainly delivered. Kady is a dream to work with, who doesn’t just go that extra mile, she does it with joy and a smile. Any changes or challenges on the project were treated as if it were her own baby. I trust her and can’t recommend her enough.


Kady impressed me from the start. Intelligent and brand savvy, she understood my business from the get go. She is always happy to listen to my instructions and talk through ideas. I’m incredibly happy with her work and will continue to use Kady Creative for all my design in the future.

I’ve also helped heaps of clients get past those initial hurdles and into the enjoyable part (it does exist!), where business is thriving.

You know… that unique quality of yours, deep down, that made you start in the first place. My goal is to ensure you can focus on that, plus have no more website shame, no more cringing every time you hand out a business card or post online. Brand strategy is my thing – particularly in the food and lifestyle arena. I want you to have an on-trend, beautiful brand that you LOVE and are super proud of. I’ll hold your hand for the first bit and then send you off on your way, with confidence. You’ve got this! Here’s to dreaming big.
