About Me

Hello! 

I’m Kat Chien and this is my portfolio site.

I have over ten years of experience working within the arts industry with companies specialising in the presentation of dance, music and fine arts. I hold a Bachelor of Arts with a major in art history and a Post Graduate Diploma in arts management from the University of Melbourne. I also recently completed a diploma of graphic design from Laureate International Universities – CATC Design School in 2017 while working full-time in Australia’s most visited art museum.

In 2018, Darcy & Mouse Studio was founded. Named after what would have been my cat’s name and his long-lost brother (it’s a long story), it personifies the style in which I approach my designs – simple, classic sophistication with a lot of grit.

Design is my passion and I guarantee a holistic approach when executing projects. From conducting extensive research, designing logos, publications, creating marketing campaigns including collateral and websites, I make sure your business is everybody’s business. Collaboration is key and I get tickled pink by the idea of exploring distinctive commercial possibilities, taking your project to the next level.

My strong work ethic and determination to excel and succeed in everything that I do has allowed me to reach great outcomes in my career so far. With this approach, I offer my considered knowledge and experience, genuine honesty and good humour to accomplish the job.

Do get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you!
