I am passionate about small business and brands. I love LOVE to support creative and brave people who set out to start their own business. It’s what I’ve done for many years, and it’s what I love to see others do. “Consulting” isn’t quite the right word for what I do. I think my clients would consider it more “business therapy”. And seriously – when you’re running the show and exhausted, stretched too thin, and drained creatively, a therapist is exactly what you need!
{I can help with anything from copy writing to ecommerce management to social media management and Facebook ads. Visit my site to read more.}

What began in June 2007 as a place for Kelly to catalogue inspiration and musings quickly turned into a design crush of massive proportions! On Design Crush every post is kept short and sweet (crush-sized!), showing off anything and everything Kelly's inspired by. When undistracted by obscure and clever design finds, she can be found freelancing as a graphic designer/creative problem solver/consultant.

After getting her BFA in photography from Savannah College of Art & Design, she moved to Los Angeles where she rediscovered her love of design. She then dove into jewelry making, painting, writing, and traveling back and forth across the country. She can currently be found writing about all things modern on Design Milk & Element75.
