We at Hopper Group love our clients and have the privilege to serve an array of talented professionals from aircraft pilots to wine makers. Our client of mention is a graphic designer, style blogger, creative director and contributing writer; Meet Rae, of RAE ANN KELLY. Rae is the go to girl for clever, stylish, design and boast her work at such companies as The Land of Nod, Minted, Jones Design Company, Google, and The Mother Company to name a few!
We recently had a chance to catch up with Rae and ask her a few things for this feature. Here is what she had to say…
How long have you been in this line of business?
“I’ve been in the creative industry since 2009 but branched out on my own as a graphic designer and creative director in 2014”.
What are some of your favorite projects you’ve worked on?
“It’s so hard to choose but here are the first few that come to mind. The children’s book designs I’ve done for one of my favorite longtime clients,The Mother Company. I also had the great privilege of styling photos for a home decor book last year called, Living with Kids. The turnaround time was so crazy quick that I almost didn’t say yes to the opportunity and didn’t really have a chance to be excited about the project but when my copy of the book arrived I was absolutely thrilled! There is something extra special about seeing your work (and name!) in print. Lastly, I absolutely love scheming, making and photographing weekly creative content for my blog. It’s nice to be able to share whatever creative ideas and projects are happening in my life at the time”.
What are some of the latest projects your working on?
“For me the new year is all about putting together pitches and building relationships (or at least trying) with the companies and clients on my wish list while also making sure I’m available and giving fresh ideas to my existing clients and blog readers. This year one of my pitches includes a line of textiles that I hope will turn into a little kids bedroom collection. At the moment I’m waiting for test swatches to arrive in the mail so I can finish my presentation and send in for consideration”.
Whats one word you could use to describe yourself?
Rae and her husband Johan live in Bonney Lake, WA with their 5 children. We had the privilege of assisting in the rental of their previous residence and look forward to working together on their home purchase in the future. We are also grateful for the friends and family they have referred to us! Thank you Rae and family.
