Kelli R. Parker

Creative Executive

Hello. I'm Kelli.

I'm smart and I get shit done.

That's not a brag, it's true. In the past decade, I've actively designed for projects in addition to overseeing them from a high level, led a creative team to develop innovative design solutions from broad concept development through implementation, and collaborated with people from diverse disciplines to translate ideas into real products. I've spoken on business panels, been featured in magazines and on television, and I'm told I throw a great party.

Why you'll love me

Strategist with Style

With a background in journalism, art and business, and more than 20 years of experience as a journalist, graphic designer and entrepreneur, I love pizza, paper, many shades of purple, peonies, and the way new babies smell.

Collaborative Vision

A natural networker, I am energized working with people from diverse disciplines — executives, marketing, product management, engineering teams and beyond — to translate creative strategies into compelling solutions.

Ambitious Problem Solver

As a design thinker, I believe dynamic design is a science that plays a role in solving problems to improve the user experiences. I can roll up my sleeves and get granular but I'm most comfortable as a "thought leader" providing inspiration alongside solid ideas.

Strategic Risk Taker

A seasoned entrepreneur, I think like a founder and identify opportunities to grow business in ways related indirectly or directly to my areas of expertise. I'm always looking for diverse opportunities and I'm not afraid to take risks in the name of making things better.
