After graduating from University of Technology Sydney, with a Bachelor of Design, I fell into the book publishing industry by accident and decided I loved it. The first book project I worked on was an amazing creative concept as it included conceptualising complex illustrations for a children’s non-fiction series.
Since then I’ve spend more than twenty years in international book publishing, specialising in full-colour, illustrated and photographic book production from concept development and project establishment through design, pre-press and printing processes.
I’ve worked in the subject areas of cooking, gardening, lifestyle, health, travel, natural history, history, architecture, science and children’s books.
I was Senior Designer at Weldon Owen Publishing and Reader’s Digest and was Art Director at Global Book Publishing, all Sydney based companies.
For the past ten years I’ve worked freelance, often still working with book publishers and more recently I have been designing publications for not-for-profit organisations and government agencies, and creating marketing material for a local school.
I love designing things—don’t we all. I also enjoy learning new things, including designing my new website! If you’ve got a job in mind—big or small, I’d love to hear from you.
What People are Saying
“Kylie’s work is always fantastic.”
“I have worked with Kylie Mulquin on various projects over several years. She has designed logos and stationery for my businesses and designed my eCookbook. Not only does she take great pride in what she does, but her attention to detail is also meticulous. She sticks to the client brief, and her work is consistently delivered on time and at a very reasonable cost. Kylie is an outstanding and reliable designer. I’d work with her again. You should too.”
