Hi! I'm Kayla!
I specialize in bold design, testing the limits to propel my client’s and their businesses further. Great design, compelling marketing, and high quality printing are crucial to a brand’s success. I help my clients foster their brand and create eye-catching marketing through print and digital media.
The very first piece of marketing I ever created was a billboard in California - from that moment I was hooked. Design is an obsession for me. The way that we can create emotion, drama, love, loyalty... all through design is absolutely thrilling. I have been in the print industry for nearly 12 years, rendering ideas into images and images into printed materials makes me giddy. I work with my clients from the very first design concept to the final piece.
I have a super cool husband and a beautiful little boy. We live in Gresham, Oregon enjoy playing with our pups and all the Northwest has to offer.
Let’s do cool stuff together!
I have always had a drive for being creative and organized. I have a background in Apparel design and Photography. Graduated in 2010 from The Art Institute of Portland with my Associates in Apparel Design, from there I jumped into photography for about 5 years where I ended up discovering my love for print design. I decided to get my Bachelors in Marketing, completed in May 2018. I am extremely excited for this journey at The Bold Orange where I will be able to develop my skills to the fullest! I enjoy working with people and hearing all the different backgrounds, history, and experiences they have to share. I truly love how a picture is worth a thousand words, and the emotions that design can create. Born and raised in Oregon, I am a single mom of a very adventurous 2 year old boy. Grew up in the Gresham community, graduate from Sam Barlow High School. When I am not working I find myself creating a new DIY project at home, running, and recently found a passion for meditating and self-love.
Art has always been my happy place. Growing up I was the kid who doodled in the margins of her notebook in the middle of class. It wasn’t uncommon for me to be seen with a sketchbook, or sitting in a favorite spot at home spending hours on a project. Art wasn’t just something that brought me happiness though, often it gave me the chance to connect with other people. Friends, family, a stranger close enough to look over my shoulder. You’d be surprised just how good a conversation starter one little sketch could be and how happy you could make somebody by sharing what you created with them. For me, that connection is what turned art from a hobby into a passion.
