About Blakeley Kilgore

Artist. Designer. Front-End Developer.

Blakeley Kilgore was born in Providence, RI, but calls Fairhope, AL “home.” She attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Fall 2011 and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts/ Liberal Arts degree from Auburn University. She is on track to earn a Master of Arts degree in Mass Communication with a specialization in Web Design and Online Communication through the University of Florida at the end of April 2017, and she is currently working as a remote graphic designer for Moody River Living magazine. In 2016, she completed a social media internship at the Lee County Humane Society and an SEO/ graphics internship at Initial Outfitters. She is currently seeking full time opportunities in the Web Design field.

Kilgore has discovered a passion for ease and aesthetics that has captivated many designers before her. She is dedicated to enhancing her design skills, and will always continue to love and pursue fine arts on the side.

When she is not working on all things visual, you will find her outdoors, most likely near the water, and most likely with her dog.
