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 October 2017, I made the decision to launch my own brand Kel Creative - and here I am!
Having an interest in graphic design and the ever-growing digital world, prompted me to do a course in website design so that I could offer my client base a broader range of options for their business. Since then, I have learnt on the job and honed my skills to create many brilliant and functional websites for clients including ecommerce.
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 grew to over 400 members and up until the COVID-19 pandemic met on a monthly basis (not all 400 members!) as well as communicating through a Facebook page and holding annual events. The Group provided support, advice and valuable networking opportunities to business women in the local area and I thoroughly enjoyed being involved with such enterprising local ladies. At the end of 2021, the group was handed over to a new team of business women to push it forward.
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 in our beloved caravan, Anneka the Challenger.
