Kerri Ainsworth is a designer, artist and creative director living and working in Sydney. From her studio in Surry Hills, she creates designs for events, film, television, installations, corporate and commercial interiors.

Starting out as a freelance illustrator and cartoonist, it was Kerri’s work as a storyboard and conceptual artist that launched her into filmmaking. World-renowned author Morris West invited her to join his team where she created visual presentations of his novels to pitch to Hollywood producers. Soon after she was snapped up by Barry Humphries' film 'Les Patterson Saves the World'.

Since then she has designed, art directed and project managed feature films, television series, commercials, corporate videos, doco dramas, special events, award-winning exhibition stands, conferences, gala dinners and commercial interiors.

Some of her projects have included: designing the feature film, 'Mr Accident'; art directing the 'Deep Sea Dreaming' segment for the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympic Games; designing the interior of the International Film School Sydney; and the Christmas installation at The Star casino for the past four years.

Expanding on her area of expertise, she completed a Masters Degree in Design at the University of NSW in 2012 on 'Creative Collaborations and Sustainable Practice' and her articles have been published in academic journals as well as trade publications.

A regular lecturer at several Sydney educational institutes, Kerri is also often featured as a guest speaker at industry events, including the Australian events industry's largest trade show, Sydney’s Event Showcase.
