Inspired by International Women’s Day, we profiled several of the awesome women who work in our spaces to celebrate their success.

 

 
 
Kate Sommerville runs Sommer Studio, a design studio focused on balanced, minimal & thoughtful Branding, Packaging + Web Design.
 
 
I asked Kate a few questions (with an IWD slant) so we could all get to know her better and here’s what she said:
 
 
 
Q: Who inspires you?
I’m always inspired by people who have energy and focus on their passion – we all live differently with different interests and when I meet someone who’s bright and grabs life with both hands, you can’t help but be inspired by it!
 
 
 
Q: What’s your superpower?
I think my superpower is reading & understanding people (maybe that’s mind reading – watch out 🤣) – my job is based on understanding people’s needs and desires for their business. So I like to think, I use my ability to really understand that creating what was in their head without knowing it.
 
 
 
Q: What achievement are you most proud of?
I look back at uni and clearly remember a teacher saying I would make a better Studio Admin than a designer – I could have stopped then, but the fire inside me was strong, I worked harder and pushed to find ‘my’ design style and I’m glad I didn’t listen to her throw away comment. I find there’s nothing more satisfying than pushing yourself to a goal when maybe even you didn’t think you could do it. Maybe that’s why I sign up to do things like a triathlon when really I’m not a runner.
 
 
Kate, having worked with you on several projects now, I can unequivocally say that mind reading is definitely your superpower. Somehow you always turn my airy fairy briefs into something incredible!!
