While most kids spent their time playing games on the computer, Kelia West was getting her first taste of her predestined career in graphic design with a now-antiquated computer program called Print Shop Pro. After creating countless advertising campaigns advocating for “Barbie for President,” birthday cards, and customized CD case inserts for her favorite bands, Kelia realized that she was hooked. However, it wasn’t until she took a graphic design class in high school that she realized she didn’t just have a passion for the art, but that she was also very gifted in it.

Kelia spent 7 years as a Copy and Print Supervisor at Staples, where she realized that her graphic design skills were best used in creating marketing materials and collateral designs for clients and businesses. As our graphic designer, Kelia now puts her skills to good use by creating digital works of art to meet the marketing needs of our clients. She will graduate in the winter from Full Sail University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design.
