ready for a refresh?

strategic + playful design is

totally our style.

Your brand presence should be more than a logo and a color palette.

it has to mean something,

and meaningful design always stems from a story - your story, to be exact.

“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!"

as for the important stuff...

Most days, you can probably find me:

With a very basic Starbucks order-in-hand (no shame)!

Spoiling my dog-child, Piper, and thanking my lucky stars for my sweet husband, Rob.

Finding any excuse to purchase a bouquet of fresh peonies

Fixing up our 1930’s bungalow in Birmingham. (We secretly want to live there long enough to throw our house a 100th birthday party!)
