michael kelly Art Director, Graphic Designer and a dynamic creative individual

A dynamic creative individual

Give me a design challenge to wrestle with, a campaign to plan, a publication to layout or a brand identity to create and you've got one happy man. I thrive on opportunities to innovate and transform curly conundrums into common sense solutions. I have a strong work ethic and am well equipped to work in a fast pace, multi-project and multi-deadline environment. I am not afraid of putting in the hard yards to produce or mentor people to deliver exceptional results.

I was born and grew up in Taranaki and completed my secondary schooling in New Plymouth, following onto a Bachelor of Design with Honours from Massey University in Wellington.

Life's a charm in the burbs, a first home buyer in Tawa, where I raise monarch butterflies, grow my veggies, care for a small flock of backyard chickens, and live (what I call) the real life. The Colonial Knob scenic walkway is my recommendation to locals and visitors as a must-do walk; It's a steep summit climb which gives you panoramic views of the Wellington coastline, the South Island and, on a clear day, you can even spot my mountain.

"I'm delighted with how the inforgraphics are shaping up and Michael is great to work with... Can I just say how nice it is working with someone who picks up every single edit that has been marked! Not always the case I have found."
