Design is my passion. I created From Scratch Design eight years ago to pursue my dream job. It’s been quite a journey, and I cherish the opportunity to do what I love on a daily basis. Shoot me an email if you’d like to get in touch.


My current home base is Boulder, Colorado and my clients are based all over the US. I do everything from designing, planning and managing responsive WordPress web projects to crafting visual brand elements for both print and web.

You should know that I’m kind of a WordPress fanatic. OK, not just ‘kind of’—I love WordPress and the freedom it gives my clients to manage their own websites once my creative work is done. In fact, I’ve helped managed several WordPress meetups, headed up a successful freelancers business oriented meetup, and I speak at WordCamps  to share the knowledge I’ve learned about web design and my pride in the WordPress community.

HOW I WORK

To expertly craft the online presence of my clients, I’ve assembled a network of top-notch photographers, copywriters, developers, illustrators, and other designers. These remarkable creative talents are crucial to my projects and their skills are unmatched.

No matter the size of the project, I always spend time getting to know my clients and their brands, their target audience, business goals, and long-term vision. It doesn’t matter to me if that process lasts one week or a few months—whatever it takes to learn everything I need to know to exceed expectations and fulfill every promise.


When it comes to the details behind the big picture, data-driven design is the only way I operate. Every design decision I make is based on what I learn during the ‘getting to know your brand’ sessions. You have my word that every graphic I create is informed by data, strategy, and experience—nothing arbitrary here.


I’m very selective about how many projects (and which ones) I take on to ensure that my existing clients will always get one-on-one focus from me. If we’re working together on a project, I can promise you’ll have my full attention.

If you’ve made it this far, you probably have a project in mind that you’d like my input on. I’d love to hear more. Send me an email, and let’s get the conversation started.

Nothing Kelly designs is without reason. If you have clear goals for your business, Kelly will design to achieve them— and we’ve never seen her fail. If you don’t yet have clear goals for your business via a new design, Kelly knows the right questions to ask to determine your goals.
