About Missy

Missy Dempsey is a multi-disciplinary creative based in sunny Sydney. With a focus on spreading joy and optimism, Missy’s cheerful work spans across graphic design, illustration, animation and art direction.

I’ve been working as a graphic designer for over 11 years now, the first 7 of those were in agencies and past 4 have been for myself. My superpowers are active listening, visualising concepts and drinking more cups of tea than water.

I love all things bold, bright and colourful. Whether illustrating personalities for Mardi Gras, designing concepts for social impact campaigns, or creating collages for my next exhibition, my mission is to bring joy to people through every medium. 

Drop me a line, and we can talk about your ideas over a (virtual) hot beverage.


"Having worked with Missy on several TV shows, I can say that she is a fantastic designer. She has a great sense of style and is able to take your half thought through concepts and turn them into fabulous visuals and layouts that are much better than you had the right to hope for. She is a good communicator, and by that I mean that she understands when you try to explain things to her, and she is in turn good at explaining things to you too. "

James Edwards, Giant Dwarf Productions



When the job calls for it, Missy collaborates with a wider team of creatives to deliver agency standard campaigns.


Gabriel Virata

Motion Graphics

Gabe is a hard-working, mocha-drinking, spreadsheet-loving powerhouse. 

Over the last 10 years he’s worked with television networks, global tech start ups, media and production houses, fashion labels and art galleries to deliver awesome creative content across a whole range of media.

His passion for motion graphics is driven by his desire to make brands pop. He has particularly enjoyed working on LGTBIQ focused projects collaborating with Queer Screen, The Feed and SBS Viceland.

When he’s not restarting After Effects he can be found travelling the world, watching rom coms, fine-dining and dreaming big.


Pip Barnes

Senior Designer

Pip is a natural born communicator, cat lover and Christmas enthusiast. 

Variety is the spice of life, they say. Pip’s passion for the creative field is all encompassing and hard niche; architecture, photography, art history, design, interior design, hand lettering… you name it, she’s done it.

When Pip isn’t solving creative problems, you can find her feeding her coffee addiction and tending to her plant babies.
