AWARD School and UTS visual communications graduate Kiah Barker joins LOUD full-time following a highly productive three-month internship with the agency.

“Kiah has been kicking goals at LOUD since day one and continues to inspire us with her creativity and enthusiasm. She’s definitely one to watch,” adds Thomson.
