Hi my name is Kiki. I’m the founder and creative director at 9 Designs.
Firstly, thank you for coming this far into the website and showing interest towards the 9 Designs story.
In 2016, at the age of 19, I was introduced to the world of Property Investment and business.
Having picked up Photoshop skills throughout my teens, I began helping property professionals with creating their business cards, brochures and leaflet designs just as a way to make some extra pocket money.
The first 9 Designs logo was created just so I could have a name and face for my clients to refer to for designs. But low and behold, this is when the 9 Designs brand was born.
In 2017 I was fortunate to be included in a power team of young entrepreneurs who launched the company SPCE. I grew into my role as the Vice President of Real Estate whilst still working on 9 Designs.
After realising the high demand and the problem I was uniquely addressing, the need for design and brand strategy in the Property Industry, I decided to found 9 Designs.
I decided to re-brand to a more contemporary and sleeker look for the logo. The new Identity of 9 Designs was born. One that still represents us until this day.
In the same year, SPCE was selected to be a part of the inaugural cohort of the International Colliers PropTech Accelerator, powered by Techstars. This accelerator process took place in Toronto over 4 months, giving myself and the team the opportunity to be exposed to and coached by some of the most successful and impactful entrepreneurs and industry professionals.
The program enhanced and taught me many skills and abilities. I was strapped for time, getting accelerated myself, so I needed to become focused on finding creative solutions to make the most impact decisions for both businesses.
After deciding to leave SPCE, it was time for me to really focus.
I had a think about the last 10 years and asked myself a few questions.
“What have I done in these last 10 years consistently?
"What have a I got better at?"
"What have I always had an interest, got fulfilment from but may not have paid enough attention to?”
...Designing & Business!
You know when people say they had that light moment. This was mine.
At the start of 2020, we now have completed over 60 projects, grown our team to 3 and helped businesses grow to achieve that next level all through the power of design.
With a real plan now in place for 9 Designs, there's more excitement to come because we've just begun.
We are 9 Designs and we forge brands, appealing to the senses.
