Kelly completed a degree in neuroscience before pursuing her love of design at the University of Otago, and studying further at Shillington College in Melbourne. She gets her kicks from the distillation of complex concepts into simple, digestable graphic forms that surprise and delight. Kelly likes to work with colour palettes that sing, typeset intuitively, and injects her work with a warm sense of humour. Thoroughly exploring the brief is the best way to create intelligent design solutions – she is constantly drawing upon her analytical skills from her past life as a scientist.

She is a designer for KWP! Design Hub in Darwin, and creates illustrated goods as Reckless Kelly ︎︎︎
