Ever had that idea scribbled on the back of a napkin? An amazing new something you need to convey to your customers, but don’t know how? That’s where I step in.
My intuitive understanding of client needs allows my designs to be the "exactly what I was looking for" solution; designs that make your customers take notice. I offer effective designs that accomplish client goals quickly and efficiently.
I have worked with many different businesses and created a multitude of successful print, web, and social strategies during my 13 years in the design industry. From small gardening businesses to large food chains, every industry has unique ways of marketing. I provide the experience that aligns your needs with your industry, customers, and budget.
Designing is only a portion of a project. There are numerous details and asking the right people the right questions can make or break a campaign. I’ve worked alongside printers, programmers, photographers, copywriters and event coordinators—all the while being the liaison between them.
From websites to product launches, I easily maneuver between writing code, design, production and logistics. I save you the cost of hiring additional personnel or an agency and remove the worry of having to navigate these on your own.
"I was impressed with how quickly Kelly understood our corporate brand and brand standards. The first project I hired Kelly for had an extremely quick turn around time. She understood exactly what I was looking for and we were able to complete the project with only one edit (which is unheard of). She has other clients, but always makes me feel like I am the top of her priority list, never mentioning that she can't make a deadline, no matter what the requested time frame. Her work is superb and original and she is a joy to collaborate with. It's always a pleasure!"
-Melanie Davidson, Director of Marketing
"Kelly was quick to respond to any change requests or additional needs – although very little revision was ever needed because her first drafts were near perfect. Even two months later when I needed a different format of the design, she quickly delivered exactly what I asked for!"
-Melissa LaRoe, Internal Communications Specialist
"Working with Kelly at Tenth Muse Design has been an amazing experience! I always turn to Kelly when I have a client that is looking for someone who can create unique and professional marketing material/branding that is in line with their vision. She has an uncanny way of understanding client needs, asking the right questions, hitting tight deadlines and getting my clients what they are looking for. On a more personal level, Kelly did the branding for my business and was able to hit the target right out of the gate. She designed a brand that truly embodies what I do and one that I am proud to show off! "

"Kelly has been designing for Harmony Laser Center since 2008, her ability to truly see the personality and culture of our business, and capture it so masterfully in our brand, is truly amazing! With each passing year her crisp, contemporary ideas have continued to keep pace with the evolution of our business and our mission.
Thank you Kelly...It is great to have you on our team!!"

-Kurt Sorensen, Owner
"Kelly was great! She sat down with my partner and I and took our confused and fragmented visions for our vehicle wrap and turned it into a clean and sharp design. She was wonderful and we will definitely be back for more design work as we grow our company!"
-Mike Stahlman, Owner

"We came to Kelly at Tenth Muse Design with only a vague idea of how we wanted our logo to look. After just a week she created an amazing logo design and business tagline that really defines us as a company. She created a custom illustration for our logo that is absolutely perfect and unique to our business. At every turn Kelly superseded our expectations!"

Potions Tea Company
The real question is—what don’t I design. I’ve been put on the roster for almost every kind of project, from creating a new team mascot for a charter school to making dead mice look good. That’s right, a charter school...
Did I miss something? If you have a project I haven’t worked on yet then I am truly intrigued.

I have been part of the visual design and marketing industry for more than 13 years. Starting in the print industry, I managed and designed for seven years before finding myself ready for agency life. I thrived in that fast-paced framework for six years, designing for a web-focused marketing agency and eventually becoming Art Director. Now I work for myself, which has allowed my creativity to soar even higher.
Though I am a highly proficient website and digital media designer, I am a formally trained graphic designer. Yes, I actually use the degree I worked so hard for in college and I love what I do. It’s an anomaly.
I strive for work/life balance. Which means I’m not only a super designer extraordinaire, I’m also a hot room yoga masochist, wonder mom of two, and in my free time I bake my husband a wicked cherry pie from scratch.
