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.

Trials and Trials
2024

I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship to things I have no control over, and how that’s influenced my being at different stages of my life. I have a plethora of books, objects, and miscellaneous scraps I hold on to *just incase* I may use them. 

When making in this nature, I revisit my inventory, some items have been here for years, others only a few months, and each time I peruse through, I find something new. I like to let my brain and blade wander as I cut out various pieces, unaware of a budding theme or relationship until I feel content with the process of looking. Once I assess what I’ve pulled, that’s where the relationship building begins.

I enjoy how we notice different things about the same thing at different times, it’s a good indicator that we’re learning, even if only a little.
