After graduating, Karin joined Tucker and Kidd, and remained with Ian Kidd Design for 28 years progressing from a junior designer to company director. Loyalty is her strong point. She bought the company and started KSD on April Fool's Day 2007. Wine and food dominate her life, both in and out of the office, producing a swag of award winning packs and then downing the spoils. Her philosophy is simple – surround yourself with like minded people, enjoy what you're doing, provide the best service you can and keep the fridge stocked.
