— My name is Tet (Maria Theresa) Kelly and I am a communication designer and educator with a passion for life-long learning, and a flexible and multidisciplinary approach to creativity. Kubo Kreative is my freelancing business, creative playground and where I curate my best work. My specialisations include branding, illustration, photography, publication, digital and web design. With a versatile design aesthetic that combines traditional and contemporary, I take pride in representing game changers including grass roots organisations that embody values of social justice, diversity and equity. Driven to inspire a future where everyone is able to creatively communicate in this digital space, I aim to produce work that is effective, intentional and insightful. Do not be deceived by how professional this reads; I am also fun to be around! Also, I make killer Chicken Adobo.
