Hello. I'm Kelly Parker. I live in Suffolk just a few miles away from the coast (lucky me) in a town called Halesworth. I started my career as a Graphic Designer at a local Publishing Company. They taught me everything I know and I was lucky enough to work on local and national magazines and newspapers, as well as for private clients. I also penned editorial and gained invaluable experience of the printing and design industry over the 8 years that I worked there.
In 2015 I launched Creative Duck Design Agency alongside my business partner. Over the next 2.5 years we built the business up, gaining an impressive list of clients and an excellent reputation for quality design and great customer service. In October 2017, I made the decision to go solo with my own brand Kel Creative - and here I am.
I work with all kinds of individuals and businesses big and small, including lots of local companies whom I love to support. As a small business myself I totally understand the constraints of small budgets and short deadlines. My contacts in the printing industry mean that I can also offer very competitive printing prices.
In early 2016 I founded the all female networking group - Halesworth Women in Business, the group now has over 350 members and meets on a monthly basis as well as communicating through a Facebook page and holding annual events. The Group provides support, advice and valuable networking opportunities to business women in the local area and I thoroughly enjoy being involved with such enterprising local ladies.
When I'm not designing stuff, you will often find me out and about with my children - Layla & Reggie, husband Tom and our dog - called Pig, exploring Suffolk, Dunwich Woods is a favourite. We also have a super awesome caravan, although we are yet to venture out of East Anglia. You may also find me in the kitchen, cooking for friends.
