About Kelly

Hi, I’m Kelly. Welcome! In case you were wondering, this is both my website and blog. What can I say? I’m a multi-tasker.

I love to design. I love to write. That’s the gist of this site.

I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. As a kid I loved to draw, write, make clothes for my dolls, create elaborate collages and take photos. I dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. And then an art teacher. And then a photographer. I ended up studying Advertising as well as Fine Art and Photography at Michigan State University (Go State!).

After working in several different agency settings, I started Kelly Ashworth Design. I provide graphic design services for business and social events. I created this site to showcase my work, but also to show you lots of fun designer-y things, share tips, and perhaps expose my inane sense of humor.

My work has been featured in periodicals such as: Desert Living Magazine, Phoenix Bride & Groom, Arizona Bride, Bride & Bloom and AZ Magazine and websites such as Junebug Weddings, Ruffled, Think Splendid, Wedding Lovely, and Sage Wedding Pros.

I live with my husband (and bestie), Scott, and our daughter, Ingrid in a groovy mediterranean-style house outside of Phoenix, AZ. I suppose I do the same things everyone does in their free time (read, watch TV, shop, speak in a British accent) but I particularly like to travel. And eat. Doing both at the same time is ideal.

I really enjoy what I do, and I hope you really enjoy reading all about it.
