my name is kirstie van der spuy...but most everybody calls me kiki.
I was born in South Africa, raised in Canada and planted roots in Southern California.
As a visual designer & digital storyteller, I have over a decade of experience working in LA, Orange County, San Diego and Toronto.
My interactive and print design experience has led me to design web sites, flash animations, design systems and marketing collateral for such big name clients as FOX Studios, Kraft Foods, Hasbro toys and LEGO, to name just a few.
I have had the good fortune of with working with agencies, in design studios, and on the client side in the Marketing, Creative and E-commerce departments of some great companies.
I enjoy working cross-functionally and building lasting relationships with the people I collaborate with.
Beyond my experience on paper, I am personable, pro-active, dedicated and have the professional references to back it up.
I believe in collaboration, not conflict. I am professionally driven by the creative and business goals of any given project, not my ego.
On the personal side, I'm obsessed with: my family (including our cat Denny), Spotify, fashion & trying to make my kids laugh (with mixed results, but I believe in persistence)
