Jade Cavalcante
With a diverse background ranging from business, strategic planning, management, teaching to building with earth, a love for art and technology led me to Graphic Design. I’m currently Graphic Designer, IT assistant and Events Coordinator at SCAPE Public Art.

Regina Speer
I’m a communication designer, an entrepreneur and a citizen of the world. I feel blessed that I discovered my passion for design at a young age – and this passion continues to grow. Gaining new skills and learning about the latest technology drives me. I love to create a great user experience in my designs. No matter if web, mobile or print, I design for people.

During the past year, I also worked on a music app for iOS called MOOJ®. It is a personalised music playlist generator learning about your specific listening habits. The current version is live on the App Store and I’m looking to develop it further.

In my spare time, you will find me tramping, surfing or anywhere outdoors. I’m also interested in music, culture, people, food and the environment. I’m a problem solver at heart and love challenges because they facilitate personal growth.

Kate Darby
Kate Darby is a designer and start up founder. She is about to launch Dovetail X, a platform for creatives to assemble their dream teams to collaborate on projects. Kate is also the The Design Kids Christchurch host and Design Studio Facilitator at Ara Institute. She loves brand and product design, and desperately wishes she was awesome at illustration. Mostly she just wants to see other creatives collaborating and doing epic stuff.
