I’m Kellie Bambach.

Creative Director

I’m a multi-faceted designer led by an adventurous curiosity, creating with purpose and intention.

Problems aren’t solved inside the box. Or outside either. They’re solved by experienced, open-minded, freethinkers who have a unique ability to remove barriers and limitations and look at things differently. That’s me. I was born that way.

Except for the experience part. That comes from 20 years of working with worldwide advertising agencies and boutique design studios throughout San Francisco and Ann Arbor, Michigan, a national retail chain and a top entertainment company. And from 11 years of running my own creative studio. That’s a lot of experience.

At Rivet I provide successful problem-solving, creative positioning, and strategic design solutions to businesses of all sizes anywhere in the world. I’d love to do the same for your company.

I have worked with Kellie on multiple projects, and what I find most helpful is that she always takes a step back and looks at the project from all angles to find the best creative solution. She really has a pulse on what is going on in the industry too. Kellie brings thought and insight into every project while going above and beyond the assignment. She is well-known for her beautiful work and strategic thinking.

Kellie did not have an easy task, coming up with a new logo for a very traditional school district, trying to break out of the box. She created some beautiful logos for us to select from, was incredibly patient, and worked with us to create an incredible printed showpiece. It was wonderful working with her from start to finish!
