KELLY GAMACH   E

designer, illustrator, photographer.

 

Currently a freelance designer in Northeastern USA. I work with brands to build consistency across their platforms and partner with in house teams to develop new creative for editorial and social with clients like Adidas and Apple TV+.

I wear many hats and love to sink my teeth into new challenges, constantly looking at how bold visuals can inspire people and create narratives.

What I aim to never be is bored – last summer I spent four months digging up 80 million year old dinosaurs in Montana and this season I'm looking towards fashion for social change.
