Hello, My name is Kelly Parke.

Let me tell you more about my creative self and the Full Stack Designer hat I wear.

What is a Full Stack Designer?

Creating, strategizing and distributing every stage of deliverable across all media channels – print, digital, web, and motion – with research, creative process, illustration, design, HTML coding, CMS, corporate commerce, and effective marketing.

Combined with a sense of humor, work ethic and empathy, I tend to play well with others, mentor and inspire – as a team asset or solo creative.

Love what I do.

But what does that mean for you, a potential employer?
It means that, behind my smiley demeanor is an action inciter, ready to hit the ground running. My absolute passion is to take complex information and communicate it visually – bringing that kind of energy and know-how to the table, backed with solid experience.

But don’t take my word for it, please check out my education and resume below, as well as the testimonial page with long-term clients, former employers and colleagues. Recommendations are also available.
