A mix of industry experience and design intuition, paired with a growth mindset and high EQ.

 

 

Kelly Wengert

Originally from Texas, I've called the Bay Area home since 2010. 

12 years experience across a wide range of visual design challenges with global tech innovators, international retail leaders, and top-tier advertising agencies. 

Design leader with purpose, I drive results based on clear goals that empower the team, strategic insights to channel the vision for the business, and user-centered design principles to solve user needs. 

My design aesthetic can be described as elegant, functional, and thoughtful.
