PROFILE

 

Hello, I’m Sarah Kilkelly, designer, problem solver, and communicator.

I excel at brand building, digital design and marketing communications. My creative and process driven approach allows me to deliver compelling and successful work to a wide range of clients and industries.

I go beyond pushing pixels. I create effective and elegant solutions for complex design projects.

I turn a critical eye to every request, working with clients to build the right solution, not always the expected solution.

I do not like surprises. I strive to deliver successful products by establishing clear expectations.

My career began in boutique design studios and was furthered through roles in art direction, branding, publishing, and digital design. Everything I am able to do for my projects and clients is built on and drawn from this depth and breadth of experience.

It is a privilege to have crafted solutions for clients in a variety of industries such as global energy, medical research, pharmaceutical, education, manufacturing, retail, and communications, as well as for non-profits.

Clients I have worked with include Scholastic Publishing, Schneider Electric, Comcast, Brown University, QVC and Fidelity Investments, to name a few.

Beyond the creative lies an extensive knowledge of what it takes to get a job done from management and budgets, to photo art direction and selecting vendors. Seamlessly producing what I create is part of the job.

I hold my BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design with a major in graphic design. During my time at RISD I studied abroad for six months at the Academie St. Joost in the Netherlands, also in graphic design.

Currently completing UX certificate program through the Nielson Norman Group. Based outside of Philadelphia in Haddonfield, New Jersey.

I love reading, traveling to the national parks, and hanging with my beautiful family and awesome labradoodle, Henry.
