KELLY GAMACH E
art director // designer // illustrator // storyteller
A freelance designer living in Los Angeles, CA. I work with brands to build consistency across their platforms and partner with in-house teams to develop new creative across packaging, e-comm, and social. I've had the privilege to bring my skills and expertise to clients like Crocs, Bose, Penske Media, Adidas, and Apple TV+. Wearing many hats and embracing new challenges, I'm constantly looking for impactful narratives told through bold visuals.
What I aim to never be is bored – in 2021, I spent four months digging up 80 million year old dinosaurs in Montana, this summer I solo-ed across Japan, and in my next season I'm looking towards fashion for social change.
