Hello, my name is Kathy Hiscox, creative mind at Ordinary Press Company. Partial to amusing the lighthearted and antagonizing the humourless, I'm a sucker for inventive design, clever marketing and small business success stories.
I'm a small business supporter with a soft spot for simple product packaging, snarky copy and clean design. Ordinary Press Company launched in the Fall of 2016. I'm always looking for fun, freelance graphic design, copywriting/editing and small creative business branding opportunities. Having grown up in Montréal, je parle français! A lover of The Beautiful Game, Steak Frites and the months of July and August, I wear too much black, my glasses are always covered in finger prints and someday I will live in France.
work + play
Fresh air, forest walks and four-legged friends. ☀️

Have you ever woken up and wished the day ahead would come with instructions?  Just a little direction for the stuff that flies in from left field, things you don’t expect or have any clue how to deal with?  I’ve had a f...

Ideally a week with a bike in Prague or a tropical cocktail on a beach someplace warm. I’m not picky.🏝

My Saturdays are for slow coffee, errands, laundry, yard work, food prep, hopefully a long walk, possibly a short nap and I’ll probably be putting the kettle on instead of popping a cork. I do love a good Saturday.
