ready for a refresh?

strategic + playful design is

totally our style.

We know your business deserves more than inconsistent visuals and an uninspired logo that looks *just like* everyone else's.

it deserves to be an
all-encompassing, meaningful brand.

We also know meaningful design always stems from a story - your story, to be exact.

let's get started!

“Working with Kelsea was a very thought-provoking experience - one that made me really dive deep into my business and pull from a vision I didn’t know was there! Her process forced me to slow down and gain some clarity on the direction I wanted to head next. The result has given the overall look and feel of my business a stronger presence. It has also allowed me to bring in a sister-company seamlessly with a refreshed, confident, streamlined brand presence!”


"her process forced me to slow down + gain clarity"

“Kelsea was warm, welcoming, and a complete professional. We immediately felt comfortable with her as we began the process of honing in on our brand. Every step of the way Kelsea kept us on track with a clear plan of what our next step would be. It truly felt like Kelsea took the time to really get to know our business and get a sense of what we value. This made all the difference, and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out!”

- kevin, nyc vocal studio

"it made all the difference"

“My experience with Kelsea was nothing short of AMAZING. Since launching, I’ve had so much positive feedback, multiple inquiries, and booked 3 new clients just from launching my new brand on Instagram and following her brand launch process. Add to that, I’m attracting and booking my ideal customers, which is a big change!

- emily, pen & purpose

"my exprience was nothing short of AMAZING!"

merci, beaucoup!

kind client words

After several years in brand marketing for a national retailer, I traded my corporate perks + office setting for the chance to launch Kindly, a creative studio focused on helping YOUR small business thrive.

Most days, you'll probably find me jamming to T. Swift (no shame!) and dreaming of Parisian streets with a Starbucks Iced Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew in hand. There's nothing I love more than snuggling my sweet baby boy, strolling the aisles of Anthropologie, and hunkering down with a well-designed magazine... but more on that later!
