Hi, I’m Kyra Hennessy.

I am a Senior Graphic Designer based in QLD, Australia. I have been working at a senior level in a marketing agency since 2018, working with regional and national clients. I am a keen learner and will take the initiative to gain knowledge on new skills and technology within the industry. This has seen me expand and develop my skill set beyond Graphic Design. I now have professional experience in marketing strategy, social media marketing, copywriting, motion graphics, animation and video editing.
Outside of work I enjoy getting hands on with creative projects, I love refurbishing furniture, sewing and all sorts of crafts. For me there is something particularly rewarding about creating something.
