hey, I'm KELLY!

i'm a brand designer and mama who believes in pioneering change.

I've always been one to want to do things differently than how they're being done. I value the question 'why' and have a strong disregard for trends. If it's all the same, where's the sense of individuality and uniqueness? It's how I live my life and definitely how I approach branding.

i am working towards a more MINDFUL WAY OF BEING  & bringing the vision alive of like-minded FEMALE founders.

my story

In 2018 I paired a Masters degree in Marketing and 15+ years of Design experience to launch Blue May Creative Studio. I was fresh off maternity leave with my second little guy and couldn't bare the thought of leaving him for 12 hours a day to head out to my corporate job. While working a corporate job I loved with a team I adored, I still found myself in daily cry sessions, missing my baby all to watch from a distance as other women built their businesses from home with their babies by their side. I always planned to launch my Design Studio and the time felt right. Entrepreneurship has been a journey, but Mama and Manager of Me are the best 'titles' I've had so far.

The journey of my studio has been quite the experiment. I've had the freedom to play around with various design styles, dabble in various industries and have been able to hone on in on the styles and industries that bring me the most joy. And when you work from a place of happiness, the results are unmatched. Pairing my passion for sustainability and supporting fellow female founders has led me to where I am and I couldn't more thrilled or feel more blessed to get paid to do it. Doing things differently has always been a big part of me and I place great value on breathing life to unique or unusual perspectives - it's just more interesting that way!
