DesignKCY first opened it's doors in 2008, in Danville, Ca. It is owned and operated by Krista Connolly (me). I have been working as a Designer in the Graphic Design field for over 20 years. After working as a Designer and Art Director in Creative Agencies throughout the Bay Area, I made the decision to start my own Design & Branding studio. I absolutely love working as a freelance Designer because the types of projects I am able to work on vary tremendously. I am fortunate to be exposed to many different types of clients as well. Because of this, I have been able to grow as a designer and share all of my knowledge with you.
I am very passionate about Design and Branding. I enjoy working with all types of clients. I am excited to meet you, hear about your ideas, your goals and the different ways in which I can help your business grow.
