Kelly portrait

Kelly Powell, President

With over 17 years of experience in design and marketing, there isn't a lot that Kelly hasn't done! After graduating from the graphic design program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Kelly worked for award-winning advertising and graphic design firms, where her claim to fame is a still-in-circulation logo for the Kentucky Lottery Scratchoffs (along with many other regional and national brands that you won't still find on the side of a bus). She later earned her Master's degree from Indiana University Southeast while teaching undergraduate graphic design classes and began working for herself in 2003. When she’s not working, Kelly explores her love of pattern design and digital printmaking, and is a proud member of the Marketing Committee for Bivona Child Advocacy Center.

Carol Anne Cleary, Account Manager

Carol Anne works her magic behind the scenes, where she uses her expertise to help manage projects, coordinate team members, answer client questions and handle invoicing. She's our central point of contact, and responsible for keeping Kelly's right and left brains working in sync. She's also in charge of keeping the office chocolate stash replenished, a task that cannot be undervalued.
