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. |

Kady worked with us to produce our first ever kids lunchbox eBook! She did a wonderful job and we are so so happy with the final product. She was lovely to work with and very talented. She was happy to go above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the final product as well.

The Biting Truth


What does a round of changes mean?

A round of changes is an email or marked up document with feedback on the changes you would like. A round of changes can have
up to 8 changes.

What is the difference between a design change and a text change?

The first round of changes determine the design style which is then applied to the rest of the book. Once this has been signed off, the remainder of the book is designed using the same style. The final rounds of text changes refer to the changes you may want to make (spelling, minor errors etc) but it would not be changing the design at that point. If you would like more design changes, we are happy to do so at our hourly rate.

Can you supply images?

Yes! We can help to create bespoke recipe images for you or give you a great rate on our stock library photos. Contact us for more info.

How long does the book design take?

This one will vary depending on the number of pages and what type of content you have. Let us know what kind of timeframe you have to work with and we will do our very best to accomodate!
