Emily Kelly

Graphic Designer and Artist with a knack for conceptualizing and a love of typography, currently based in Boulder, Colorado. 

I love to write and think and do things with those thinkings. My practice has always been influenced by the fascination I have between the world and oneself, paired with the seen and unseen notion of tactility. I look forward to what can come of this if things are shaped just a little differently, and with a little more intent.

I thoroughly enjoy exploring the conceptual nature of a given subject, where ideas are free of form until they unfold, and am most excited about the opportunity to communicate ideas that can inspire others to think—and if lucky enough—do.




Currently open to freelance and/or long-term contracts   
Fluid Nonsense

Fluid: a person, thing or situation that moves or changes easily.

: nonsense is often caused by an excess of meaning, rather than a lack of it.

I did a bit of a deep dive into words I’ve written at peculiar hours of the night, and set out to explore some questions of mine. Once published, words and images in a newspaper are set. Their word for the day is permanent, though mine is ever-changing—rearranging. 

What is the conversation between tone and tone? Paper and fold? Type and image? Delicate and rigid? You and me... will you let them breathe?
