meet the designer
Hello! I'm Kelly, and I'm a graphic designer living in Bettendorf, Iowa. I started Noted Design in March of 2014, and I have had an awesome time building my business to what it is today. It is truly an amazing thing to be excited to wake up and go to work each day!
Over the years, I've worked in a variety of design environments. After college (MIZZOU-RAH!), I spent a few years as one of three designers at a major medical center in Chicago. There, I learned how to create intriguing design while staying within those pesky corporate guidelines. I loved my job (and the large marketing budget they allowed us!), but my husband received a job offer in the Quad Cities, so we said farewell to the our beloved Chicago. Once settled in my new small town, I spent another few years working at a print shop doing prepress and graphic design for a wide variety of customers. Working side by side with the printing press taught me a lot about designing for print. This seems like an obvious statement, but it has been eye-opening for me in terms of saving time and money for both me and my clients.
I decided to concentrate on designing wedding invitations, and could not be happier with my choice. The optimism, joy and enthusiasm engaged couples bring to our collaborations is simply amazing. I welcome all couples to contact me for a complimentary consultation so I can show you how awesome your wedding stationery can really be!
