It's me, Kelsey Abbate

I’m an award-winning designer with 10+ years of experience in fast-paced, creative and interactive agencies.

With a background in graphic design and experience in UX strategy and front-end web development, I collaborate with copywriters, engineers, strategists, and managers on multidisciplinary projects including: creative strategy, branding, websites, print design, and digital design.

I strive to make products and experiences beautiful, functional, engaging, and intuitive. I have held the unique position of acting as a design liaison, bridging the gap between creative and dev teams. I pride myself on my strong attention to detail, diligence, and efficiency.

Additionally, I support sales, client services, and operations teams with contributions to project scopes, decks, and internal processes.
