ABOUT
img
Kailey Waring
I'm a multi-disciplinary, creative and collaborative communications expert with over seven years of in-house creative and comms experience within the non-profit, NGO and association sector, and over three years of experience in publishing. I have extensive knowledge of internal and external communications, creating and directing visual strategies, engaging staff across teams, and generating and distributing content across multiple channels. As a freelance designer, I take on projects that include publications, personal websites, wedding invitations, logos, infographics, marketing collateral, video editing/production, and more. When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling, watching Jeopardy, reading, tennis, and hiking the beautiful PNW with my dog.
