Hi there, I'm Kelly and I'm a graphic designer that isn't afraid to break the rules. I specialize in creating beautiful, custom brands that sing the praises of unique individuals and their dreams while helping them get noticed for their skills and talent.
I fell in love with graphic design while studying Fine Art at CalArts. While I had always been an avid artist, I craved the structure, balance and purpose of design. Shifting my studies to graphic design, I transferred and later graduated from Chapman University with my BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Mathematics.
Before graduating college, I had landed my first full-time design job at Element Skateboards headquarters. I spent my days working closely with skateboarders, artists, photographers, and other creatives that lived their passion daily and was so inspired by this idea of building one's own idea of success.
As a passionate creative myself, I understand the frustration that comes with having a great idea that never makes it to fruition, or even worse, can't seem to live up to the image you have in your head. I have a deep respect for those that are willing to pursue their dream, and am dedicated to creating designs that will help them achieve just that. I use my attention to detail, Adobe wizardry, quirky creativity and rad design skills to help people with a passion showcase and market their talent.
I'm interested in your unique story, inspiration, and ideas! Everyone has a story to tell and a gift to share - from short poems to underwater basket weaving - and I want to help you make that dream visually come to life!
Let's make some magic!
I deeply value individuality and absolutely LOVE getting to hearing about other people’s passions & dreams - tell me yours and I can help to make it come to life!
