The People Behind the Pages – Kristy Coady

Introducing the ever-lovely Kristy: a coffee-wielding, to-do list enthusiast, who loves a snack (or two). Swell fam, meet Kristy!

Meet Kristy

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Kristy, the other half of the sister-duo who founded Swell Mag. As well as designing the pages of each issue, I guess I’m the “chief organiser.” You’ll find me brainstorming story ideas, liaising with writers, photographers and the people we feature, on location at photoshoots and attending some pretty sensational events and openings.

When not creating Swell, you will find me working as the creative director at our sister business Design Bug. Design Bug is my first baby, a branding and design agency that I started over fourteen years ago now. We have a small, tight-knit team and we love creating memorable brands for our clients.
