Kelli R. Parker

A Curious & Empathetic Generalist

Hello. I'm Kelli.

I'm smart and I get things done.

In the past 10 years, I've actively designed for projects in addition to overseeing them from a high level, led a creative team to develop innovative design solutions from broad concept development through implementation, and collaborated with people from diverse disciplines to translate ideas into actionable items. I've spoken on business panels, been featured in magazines and on television, and I'm told I throw a great party.

Passionate, creative and thoughtful in everything I do, when I see a hole, I try to fill it with products that inform and delight. Currently, I'm seeking director-level opportunities that allow me to flex my business-building muscles in fresh ways and use my very diverse skill set to make an impact in a forward-thinking company with an amazing team of team of creative thinkers, designers, technologists and empathy enthusiasts. I come loaded with kindness, leadership, motivation, experience, a well of creative ideas and a healthy sense of humor.

Why you'll love me

Strategist with Style

With a background in journalism, art and business, and more than 15 years of experience as a graphic designer, editor, illustrator and entrepreneur, I love pizza, paper, haiku, many shades of purple, peonies and the way new babies smell.

Collaborative Vision

A natural networker, I am energized working with people from diverse disciplines — executives, marketing, product management, engineering teams and beyond — to translate business development strategies into compelling solutions.

Ambitious Problem Solver

As a design thinker, I believe dynamic design is a science that plays a role in solving problems to improve the client experience. I can roll up my sleeves and get granular but my ultimate goal is to be a "thought leader" and provide inspiration alongside solid ideas.

Strategic Risk Taker

A seasoned entrepreneur, I think like a founder and identify opportunities to grow the business in ways related indirectly or directly to my areas of expertise. I'm always looking for exciting opportunities and I'm not afraid to take risks in the name of making things better.
