President and Founder
Kelly Farrell has a unique talent for getting straight to the special. It’s her specialty, and is the heart of how designRoom approaches branding.
Kelly learned design and branding working in advertising. She worked as an Art Director, Designer and Account Representative for a host of national brands. But the future she saw for herself included a more passionate approach to the work, and more personal engagement with clients. And no bosses.
So designRoom was born. One room. One designer. And lots of room to grow.
Today Kelly takes care of clients across the U.S. She has led designRoom to become an established, award winning branding and design firm. With her innate ability to see the right solution and a passionate desire to help clients to reach their goals, Kelly keeps things moving forward.
In truth, Kelly has really become a brand advocate specializing in helping behavioral health organizations. She speaks across the country on the importance of branding in behavioral health, specifically on how branding can unify an organization internally, amplify their brand promise, and help them move in a sustainable, positive direction. Oh, and there are award-winning logos, too.
Personally, Kelly is affiliated with and active in a variety of regional, and national professional organizations. These include the Cleveland Advertising Association (AAF), the American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA), and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Cleveland. She also serves as a Board Member for Signature Health, a regional behavioral health organization, and is a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP).
Kelly’s personal mission is to build healthy brands for organizations that help people, and make everyone feel like a part of her family. (It’s a big family). She knows that if she does more of that, then more people will find the help that they need. That’s real branding, for real for life.
