Creative Director Spotlight Series: Kelly Digiesi

The next installment of our Creative Director Spotlight series goes to Kelly. As one of our Creative Directors, Kelly is a talented artist with over 20 years experience designing complex projects from concept to completion. When not working magic for our clients’ brands, she enjoys running, working out and doing pretty much anything to stay fit except eating her veggies! Get to know Kelly and what inspires her:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT VISION?

19 1/2 years

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE/WHAT ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR?

I’m the lead creative director for the agency, which means I supervise our team of designers. I work closely with clients, account executives, designers, and writers. I oversee all new agency clients as well my current list of clients. I am still a hands-on designer. I not only manage my designers working on a project, but I too am working on a layout or two of my own.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU CREATIVELY?

I look at each new job as a challenge. Conquering that challenge the best I can is what inspires me. Working at Vision is great because of the range of industries we serve. One day I am working on a cheese client and then a healthcare company. So I never feel complacent. 

WHAT MADE YOU GET INTO DESIGN?

I’ve always known I wanted to do something in the art field. I’ve always been artistically inclined and would spend hours sketching. Art supplies were always at the top of my Christmas list as a child.

DO YOU HAVE ANY CREATIVE INTERESTS OR SKILLS OUTSIDE OF WORK?

I’m always donating my free time to help with my sons’ schools and sports teams, whether it’s designing the school yearbooks the last few years or designing team logos, invitations etc. Just recently I worked on an invitation to a fundraiser for Loggerhead ROV, which is a marine technology program. The students are trying to raise money to visit the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences. I love getting involved where I can.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A LEADER TO YOUR TEAM?

The Vision team of designers is fantastic; it is inspiring to see the range of talent we have to work with. I love teaching and also at times learning from them. We all work collaboratively to make sure that we’re providing the best design that we can.

Happy Birthday Kathy!

Happy Birthday Kathy!

It’s Kathy’s birthday today! As a Senior Account Executive at Vision, Kathy loves the challenge of juggling multiple projects in a fast-paced environment. A little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll, she has led a double life as a professional singer throughout her 20 year plus marketing career. Get to know Kathy and what inspires her:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH VISION?

I’ve been with Vision for just about 6 years!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

I’ve always had a love for music– writing, singing, and performing.  I have released 3 recordings of original songs and have been performing with a Fleetwood Mac Tribute show for over 10 years.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG TO PERFORM?

That’s a hard one – I love so many! One of my faves would be Landslide by Fleetwood Mac.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR THE YEAR TO COME, BOTH WORK AND PERSONALLY?

I’m excited to see the growth of the agency. We have a group of such talented, diverse and smart people that really do “make penguins fly” and I consider myself lucky to work with them every day!  For our clients, I’m always excited to be working with them on new projects and providing them with our creative ideas & strategies!  Personally, I’m excited about traveling to new places and the possibility of adding a little pup to the family!
