In their new roles, Michael and Kate will both be responsible for designing and delivering inspiring creative artwork that will be incorporated into the marketing campaigns Pellacraft creates for its clients.

Kate Bradshaw, holds a BA Hons degree in Design for Television after attending Nottingham Trent University. She started her working life as a TV propmaker at the BBC, but has spent the majority of her career in the greetings industry designing giftware. She joins the Pellacraft team after a stint working as a packaging designer for a leading fashion manufacturer.

Outside the office, Kate enjoys camping with her young family and is excited to be renovating their newly acquired caravan. In keeping with her love of design, Kate’s most unusual claim to fame is she was involved with designing the car decoration kit used for Prince William and Princess Kate’s wedding car.

Commenting on her new role Kate said, “I am so pleased to be a part of this thriving family business, particularly as their core values reflected my own for innovation in design.”

Michael Burton has also joined the design team. Michael, who lives in Chesterfield, holds a BTEC National Diploma in Multimedia studies after achieving a distinction from West Nottinghamshire College.  For the past five years Michael has been a freelance graphic designer and illustrator working with companies such as Red Lantern Digital Media, Cifci and the Triple S Sports Group. Prior to this, Michael worked as a sales operative in a call centre based in Chesterfield.

When asked about his appointment, Michael added “Having initially joined on a freelance basis, I am very happy to have been offered a full time job after only a month. The company is fantastic to work for and I am really looking forward to getting my teeth into future design projects.”

Sam Pella, Director at Pellacraft commented “We are very lucky to have acquired the skillsets of both Michael and Kate. Already they have proven to be an asset to the business and I’m looking forward to seeing how their creative abilities will enhance the quality of artwork we produce for our clients.”
