About me

My name is Karen Mackay and I am a Graphic Designer living and working on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.  I was born and brought up in Stornoway and studied Graphic Design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen. Over the last 25 years I have worked as a Graphic Designer in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ibiza (Spain) and the Cayman Islands. 


I have undertaken many varied projects over the years including design for brochures, packaging, stationary, posters, websites, book covers and even 2 spells as the Graphic Designer for the Bafta winning programme 'Katie Morag' which was shown on Cbeebies.

Living out here on the edge of the world we have to be adaptable and I feel that is where my strengths lie. I love a challenge and have frequently found there is ALWAYS a way to solve a problem one way or another.
