I'm Kate Chesterton, a British illustrator, animator & creative designer. I have been a digital creative for over twelve years & love to create bespoke imagery that has that spark of something a little bit special.

I've had the pleasure of creating work for a diverse collection of companies & clients, from designing for homes to graphics for phones; from animated TV comedy & children's books to art direction, explainer videos & infographics for e-learning. I like to enjoy collaborative relationships with agencies or individuals when they are in need of a little creative clout, so if you have an illustration project, whether it's a one off piece, or a series for a book, or maybe you need a short promo animation or help visualising the creative elements of a project, then I would love to hear from you.

Kate is an extremely talented illustrator who I have worked with on a number of creative projects. She is quick to understand a brief and is also very adept at helping to refine one and come up with new ideas so that we get the best possible creative solution.

We worked with Kate over the space of a year and in that time she delivered over 20 beautiful illustrations. Each illustration was based on an individual, and Kate managed to capture each person’s character so well that it was such a lovely and rewarding experience to be able to share the images with the subjects. Throughout the whole process Kate promptly met every deadline even when the turnaround was tight from us, she more often than not delivered work ahead of schedule. Kate embraces feedback and always comes up with a creative and exciting solution to our sometimes unusual requests.

I would recommend Kate without hesitation for her excellent creativity and imagery as well as her punctuality to deadlines. It has been a joy working with Kate and both we and the client are very pleased with her work. We will be using her skills again.

Kate produced a delightful illustration of a quirky antiques shop for us (Wickedweb) and our client Saatchi X. Kate was approachable and receptive to the concept and duly produced a fantastic piece of work that exceeded expectations. Couldn't have asked for a smoother process.
