My name is Kelly Shirey. Welcome to my website. I'd like to tell you a little about myself. I actually fell in love with Graphic Design quite by accident.
As a musician, it is a necessity to design posters to advertise shows. Be artistic already, graphic design was natural to me and it soon became something I was good at and also enjoyed doing.
I spent a few years as a billing clerk at a local graphic design firm and I would ask the artists for all kinds of tips on how to use the complicated and unintuitive graphic design software, which I had access to and took advantage of during my time there.
All of a sudden, my skillset started to evolve and get to the next level.
I was shocked and pleased when fans began stealing my posters from the walls at the end of the night and asking for band signatures. Some of the posters have even become permanent framed artwork at the establishments.
I fell into this line of work because I have a natural talent and passion for art and I also have a special place in my heart for other small business owners. Over the years, I've helped many of my clients improve their professional graphic design image and have people take notice of their newly designed and unique logos, menus, wine labels, brochures and more.
I find that, in addition to loving being able to make a living at music and graphic art, the thing I love most is helping other everyday people just like me trying to make their way in the world as entrepreneurs.
