Caroline Mackay


After graduating from the University of Canberra, I spent seven years honing my design skills working in full-time and freelance roles across Australia, the UK and the Netherlands.

These days I work with private companies, startups, publishers and NGOs to deliver marketing and advertising materials with a clean and considered design approach. I maintain good, long-term relationships with clients by always delivering quality work and through offering advice and consultation on the best design solution for each specific project—no cookie cutters here.

In my spare time I enjoy the usual personal bio clichés like drinking coffee as well as making raw treats and overdosing on podcasts.

Print & Editorial Design

I specialise in layout work—editorial and magazine design, brochures, reports, case studies and whitepapers, annual reports, and large print publications—but I’m happy to sink my teeth into any great design projects whether they be print or online, small or large so get in contact at



Illustration & Surface Design

When I’m craving some time away from the screen, you can find me experimenting with ink and paper to enhance my illustration and surface pattern design.

We are so impressed with Caroline’s print design skills that we wouldn’t go to anybody else. She is very skilled and creative, and brings our own ideas to life as well as making her own suggestions. The quality of her work is by far some of the best I’ve seen. Highly recommended!
