Hello, everyone! My name is Kiley and I am a WordPress guru who specializes in theme development, e-commerce stores, and overall WordPress customization. Have questions? Just ask! I am an open book.
With a recent BFA in graphic & web design from the University of Iowa, I have accumulated over 4 years of experience working for the University on various development projects. I've worked on a wide range of projects including: Wordpress sites, e-commerce stores, event campaigns, web & news promotions, branding & identity, web design, app & UI design, and packaging design.
ABOUT ME | BACKGROUND INFO
I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on July 28th, 1992. After just one year in the Aloha State my family moved to Davenport, Iowa where I spent my adolescent years. Growing up in Davenport, I was always out and about. During nearly all of my free time, I would be skateboarding, biking, or snowboarding(weather permitting) with friends. Over these years is when art started to influence me. Riding around the Midwest I often found myself snapping photos of local graffiti, and art became integral to my being. I started to sketch more and more, trying to emulate the many styles of letters I would find around town and around the country during family travel. I didn't realize at the time but I would essentially draw out my own fonts. In high school, I got the chance to start learning and working with the Adobe Creative Suite. My interest for graphic design grew more and more.
As I graduated from high school, I had my eye on two main colleges, theUniversity of Iowa and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I chose to stay close to my Davenport roots and enrolled at the University of Iowa. During my college years, I have met so many great people, and I have learned so much! Along with getting my BFA in Graphic Design, I also received an Entrepreneurial Certificate. After my recent graduation, I was fortunate to land another position through The University of Iowa, where I work to date, sharpening and fine-tuning my web-development and design skills.
