About the Noisy Ghost Brand

the spirit of design

The spirit of design that remains curious, inquisitive, and explorative never dies. The Noisy Ghost began as an intangible concept that wanted desperately to be real — to be believed in. It set up shop and announced its presence by knocking over the furniture and shoving things off the shelving until I started paying attention to the idea that would eventually possess me entirely.

The Flesh and Blood Behind the Ghost

a horror writer and a house that wanted to be haunted

Hi! I’m Kira — a senior user experience designer, with a background in web, graphic, and brand design. That spells out as nineteen years’ raw-knuckle experience working in both marketing and product development, and thirteen in the industry. I’ve worked for companies like Lightspeed, Airbnb, and fashion mogul, Dynamite — but my passion is helping authors tell their story through their websites and book marketing. 

I am committed to producing work that is beautiful, user-friendly, and competitive with the competition. I am in love with narrative design structure, which is why I adore working with authors, and it goes without saying that I am a voracious reader too… but I have something of a secret identity: I write horror and dark fantasy for young adults. Maybe that’s not so secret, given the theme of my company, but suffice to say that in off-hours I dabble in dark fiction.

As a fangirl, folklorist, and Fortean, a lot of my inspiration and influence comes from the fantastic, but I’ve always liked working with people who want to aggressively represent the genre they write, who like to scrutinize the details, and who want to present their author platform a little bit differently in an over-saturated market. 

I believe that every website is like a book: it ought to tell your story. I can help with that.

About Our Design Services

we can help you with all aspects of your design

For years, I behaved exactly like a vampire: sinking my teeth into some new aspect of design and drinking it dry. It’s a career in which you get weirdly ravenous if you stop taking big bites, and taking big bites are how I went from print to web to product design: when someone asks me to wear multiple capes, I bring my own costume to the party.
