If it's got to do with thoughtful branding, creative web design,
a little bit of coffee and a whole lotta' Jesus...
I'm your girl!
I'm Kelly, a
branding and web designer
for creatives and small businesses.
I'm a mom of 2 beautiful teenagers
and a rescued fur-baby,
a wife to my best friend/#mancrush,
a plant-based California girl living in the Big Apple and the child of a King!
And I'm about to become
your branding-bestie +
wrapped up in one
I design branding and websites based on a perfectly blended combination of user-experience, knowing your target audience, competitive research, a little psychology and some serious data. I do a lot more than make your brand and website look pretty, I can help you design branding and websites that captivate and convert.
KAM Design Studio was born out of a realization that beautiful branding and intuitive website design for creative entrepreneurs and small businesses is hard to find without DIY-ing something that isn't really you or paying a hefty price tag for a "website builder" to code you something you'll never figure out.
As a creative entrepreneur, I understand how frustrating it is to try and build something that just isn't what you envisioned so you don't promote it, never use it and end up frustrated, feeling defeated and ready to give up...But can I be honest? It really shouldn't be so hard.
Websites that simply look pretty don't open wallets these days. You need a website & branding with beauty AND brains.
Everyone should have the opportunity to build a brand and website they are confident in and that reflects who they are.
You need a website that guides your customer on an journey from the moment they land on your home page to the time your product or service lands in their lap. It's all about the experience, and I can help you design the perfect experience that conveys your brands mission and vision and resonates with your #tribe!
Together, through a little research, data and brand psychology, we will craft you a sustainable brand experience and intuitive website that tells your unique story and resonates with your clients.
I didn't always have this vision of being a web designer or branding expert...
Like so many of you, this business was a natural progression of what I had been doing basically my entire life... but it never had a name.
With more than two decades of design work under my belt, from owning my own jewelry business and wearing all the hats like managing our own branding, building an online store, marketing, packaging, designing... you name it...
To working for a large law enforcement agency as a graphic designer running their social media channels, building out custom websites and designing custom graphics...
I've studied, watched, learned, listened and researched and as the algorithm, trends and user-habits have changed, I've adapted.
Fast forward to today and I have been able to leverage what I know to help creative small businesses mimic the same results, and that's where the passion comes in.
To me, small businesses are the life-blood of our country. They are what keeps us moving forward when big corporations can't. They form deep-rooted connections with the communities they serve. They give people the opportunity to do what sets their souls on fire, to do something with meaning and purpose. They empower people to use their creativity and innovative thinking to dream up and create all of the new things our world desperately needs. They teach our children to think outside of the box, to envision better, to do better, to be better.
And now, I'm lucky enough to do this for my clients day after day, helping creative small businesses to build brands and websites that the internet can't stop thinking about. I've pinpointed what works in branding and web design and what, well.... doesn't. And I'm obsessed with helping creatives take all of their dreams, goals and aspirations and make them into a reality. I want to help you build a sustainable creative business that stands out in a saturated market and leaves a legacy.
So, let's grab a cup of coffee (virtually and socially distanced of course...)
and start on your creative journey together!
So glad and grateful you're here!
Let's get a little old school, Cosmo Girl quiz-style here...
Last Disney + binge?
Wanda Vision and before that was Stranger Things on Netflix!
If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be?
Jesus! So many questions... and possibly a few negotiations.
Favorite sports team?
The New York Mets!
"LET'S GO METS!"
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tacos or chips, guac and salsa, or vegetable fajitas. Can I just have an entire international food group?
Bugs. As a whole group... all bugs. If it has more eyes or legs than me, we have a problem.
Marrying my amazing husband, having our two beautiful kids and rescuing my sweet fur-baby.
Coffee in the A.M.
A good merlot in the P.M.
White lilies and hydrangeas.
Favorite genre of music?
I'm all about worship music. Particularly Hillsong United. But good 80's music will always have a place in my circa 1981 heart!
Talent I wish I had?
Athleticism. I'm quite possibly the most un-athletic person in the world. I was even told "no thank you" one time when I tried to sign up for a women's softball team at our church... by my sister-in-law.
