An accomplished advertising and marketing designer with a passion for clean, contemporary print design. For over 20 years, I have collaborated with photographers, writers, account managers, illustrators and suppliers to develop creative, compelling, strategically-based solutions. I am currently working remotely as a freelance designer, and I would like to continue to do so. I am open to part-time long-term projects or full-time short-term roles.
As an independent graphic artist, I draw on my expertise to design content for brochures, banners, posters, signs, magazine ads, billboards, strategy playbooks, corporate brochures and catalogs. I am also experienced in facility graphics, trade shows and events, presentations, identity graphics, and CD and album package design. My graphic design skills include Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop - familiar with Adobe Illustrator
and Microsoft Power Point.
Past clients include Caterpillar, Toyota, John Deere, Herman Miller,
The North Face, Subaru, Johnson & Johnson, YMCA, and
Jim McCarty of the Yardbirds.
“When a project needs to be done, and done right Janie Kelley was always my go-to person. As the Vice President of PrePress at Multi-Ad Services, I always knew that I could count on Janie to understand the goals and objectives of a project, to nail the message and beat the deadline. Janie continually impressed me with her incredible creative talent. She is an intuitive designer with a truly rare skill of being able to separate from the work enough to see her task objectively without ever losing the pride and accountability necessary to do it right.
I would, without reservation, recommend Janie for any creative project set before her.
She is a gifted designer and a professional to the end.”

"As our communications team inches closer to launching the strategy across the company,
I wanted to take a moment to tell you that you have a phenomenal team player on your hands. Without her dedication and impeccable work, this project would never have succeeded. As more strategy developments and new information arise in the coming months, I’m sure there will be more work to do...and I’ll look forward to working with

“Janie is a force to be reckoned with in the design arena. She has perhaps the most diverse set of clients in the team, and tackles each with aplomb. It is clearly evident that Janie is largely responsible for our new business with the engine groups this year.
Janie is a true go-to designer – she creates something we have not seen before,
and it is done right the first time. It’s no wonder her client list keeps growing. ”
