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   

October 2023—I’d been feeling kinda meh in regards to play; and kinda stuck to be frank. Even though I have select materials I’m always thinking about creating with, it’d been a while since I allowed myself to fool around with others. 

I looked in my closet, took out the first piece of paper I saw, and sourced some paints I hadn’t touched since—I believe... 2018—and let myself wander for a bit. At a glance, I chuckled at how it ended up looking like an assortment of mini M&Ms, my favorite.
