Design Sense has grown from Helen Kenny being a sole trader based at home in 1996 to a recognised design studio based in Burt Street Boulder, with 4 experienced team members. Having previously worked as the in-house graphic designer at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce & Industry for 3 years, Helen saw a business opportunity to fill a market niche for business branding, especially for small and establishing businesses.
In October 2011, Helen and Kristen Fragar, previously of Random Grafix developed a partnership that expanded the services to include web development and many other skills. Simon Kenny joined the team in November 2011 and we moved into our premises in Burt Street in April 2012. Chantelle Needham’s skills in web development were spotted about 2 years later and she came on board in January 2015.
Design Sense Graphics & Web has become an integral part of the local community and we look forward to serving our clients for many years to come.
Our Graphic & Web Design Team
Helen specialises in brand design and has a passion for assisting start-up businesses. She manages the operations at Design Sense and enjoys the amazing business community in Kalgoorlie-Boulder. When she’s not at work, she is involved in all kinds of projects at Kalgoorlie Baptist Church and in the community. She enjoys her growing family, cooking, spending time with friends, going bush, and being creative away from a computer! “Design Sense is a perfect business – it gives me the flexibility to do what I love and uses my skills to benefit others.”
Kristen is one of those super mums who is able to juggle two young kids, working at Design Sense, supporting her husband who also has a successful business and various musical pursuits. She is responsible for managing the web side of the business and the finances.
Simon enjoys graphic design and working on creative projects such as vehicle design, event graphics (such as for the annual Goldfields Cyclassic), video editing and all things that involve his growing family.
Chantelle has been with Design Sense since January 2015 and is carving out a niche in website and app development. Her thirst for learning, asking the question ‘how can I do this better’ and striving for innovative solutions makes her a valuable member of the Design Sense team. (She’s also a Pokemon Go fan and is looking forward to her trip to the USA in November!!)
Our Christian faith shapes the way we do business, and integrity, honesty and valuing people are qualities we strive to uphold.
