Cynthia - our head designer and founder of LSS
Hi, I'm Cynthia and one half of LSS. I was born in Singapore, where my love of design and drawing started. When I was in prep, I used to spend hours and hours drawing, I have always believe design is an instrinsic part of me. Whether it is crafts or design, I can get lost for hours and hours. I love how you can turn something simple and plain into something beautiful and you just want to say WOW! I started freelance designing back in Singapore mainly only doing for friends. About 5 years ago I immigrated to Melbourne Australia. I met Jes soon after, and the rest is history.
These days I love spending the weekends catching up with family and friends as it is pretty hectic and impossible during the week. I am also looking forward to possible day trips in future if time allows!
Hannah - one of our Illustrators and lover of all things Botanical
I'm Hannah: artist, photographer and maker of pretty things. Creating beautiful things that capture the soul and inspire the mind is my passion and I take great joy in fusing minimalist design with the honesty that comes from making something by hand when crafting my illustrations. I am a lover of all things flora and slow living, and believe that the simple way is usually the best way, which is why my designs often feature carefully considered, minimalist botanicals, delicate tea cups, and mindfully crafted observations of the everyday world around me.
Born and raised in England, I moved to Melbourne 2016 to pursue my love of creating. I have been incredibly lucky to have met and worked with so many talented and kind-hearted individuals since then who share my values of slow making, mindful practice and simple living.
Kara - lover of digital art, another of our illustrators
Hi, I’m Kara, I’m a freelance graphic designer and have been designing for over 11 years. I come from a background producing workplace learning resources specialising in print and eLearning but these days you will find me creating beautiful logos, labels, illustrations plus much more.
My passions are digital art - drawing on my iPad Pro, line illustrations as well as felt-tip pen drawings. I love working with patterns and fun colours such as pastels but I am also obsessed with beautiful neutral and muted tones.
I would say my design style is a bit of a mix, featuring minimalist, modern, organic, clean and hand-drawn."
