Meet Caity Kelly

Creative Director / Founder 

Hello you! I know you're busy, so I'll get right to it. I'm Caity. I'm a "work smarter not harder" business & design nerd with a background working for nonprofits, startups, and sustainability companies. I've worn many hats in my career and know what it's like to have big goals with a small team. 

I started Carrboro Creative because I saw an opportunity to do things differently. Most companies these days don't have an in-house design team, or if they do, it's usually just one or two people with more work than they can handle. I realized I could be most effective as a designer by helping these companies stay agile while also getting high quality, effective design.

Meet Renee

Project Manager

As a project manager, Renee loves to organize things and thoroughly enjoys playing the role of translator between client, creatives and coders. She's been a project manager for 10+ years -- in the start-up space and for larger organizations, and in both the marketing and software worlds. Once upon a time, she was a graphic & interaction designer, but later discovered that she loved planning and spreadsheets way more than she enjoyed creating wireframes and Photoshop mockups.

She's currently working on her MBA at the University of Michigan - Dearborn, but her undergraduate degree is in Technology Management from Eastern Michigan University. Her favorite part of helping Carrboro Creative clients is understanding their business goals and then helping everyone stay on track to accomplish something that delights both the target audience AND improves our clients' bottom line.

From a young age Molly has been obsessed with all things design – from interiors to book covers to product packaging, and everything in-between. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Comparative Literature. In the years since, her professional experience as a marketing director in the wedding & events industry introduced her to graphic design work. Molly is passionate about using graphic mediums to express complex thoughts and ideas. Meticulous to a fault, she loves creating designs that speak to your brand’s story, down to the smallest detail.

Meet Sage

Graphic Designer & Illustrator

Coming from a long line of artists, Sage has spent most of her life in front of a canvas or with a pencil in her hand. Her visual design skills, which she recently honed through a UX bootcamp, are bolstered by a traditional education in art theory. Sage received her bachelor’s degree in studio art from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a UI/UX design certificate through DesignLab. When she is not designing, Sage tries to spend her spare time camping and riding her dirt bike in the mountains of North Carolina.

A Message From Our Founder

Hi, I'm Caity Kelly! I'm the owner and Creative Director of Carrboro Creative. Before starting Carrboro Creative, I worked as an in-house designer at at utility-scale solar company and at a startup that was developing a nail polish to detect date rape drugs in drinks. Through my experience, I recognized a huge gap between the design needs of an organization and the capabilities of a small in-house team. I started Carrboro Creative to help fill that gap. Since opening, we've helped nonprofits, local government, solar companies, real estate agencies, accounting firms, and many more thrive with impactful design.

Unless you're a large organization, you likely don't have enough people, skills, or time to design what your company needs. We can help.
