KG ART & DESIGN brings the award-winning talent, usually found at larger agencies, to your design project. But our smaller size gives clients a more personalized approach, more direct contact with the designer, lower rates on design services and no sales representative in the middle.
Headed by designer Katia Gelman, we are a smaller, more personal agency that's done some impressive work for many companies. We've created from logos and brochures to outdoor advertising and web design. We help businesses improve their image and get more out of their marketing.
KG ART & DESIGN has earned its reputation as a hard-working agency that makes clients big and small feel important and approaches each new project with fresh enthusiasm. Website clients appreciate that we're not just technology gurus. Our eye for aesthetics allows KG ART & DESIGN to create websites that are as visually appealing as they are technically advanced. That's not something to be overlooked in a world where your website is often the first impression you give potential customers. And advertising, brochure and annual report design clients know we bring effective marketing and solid editing to the table in addition to our design skills.
First, we place a premium on both the strategic and aesthetic so you're getting a design that's as hard working as it is visually stunning. Second, we offer the kind of personalized service you won't find at larger design agencies.
Give KG ART & DESIGN a call and let us bring art to design and design to art level.

Katia's artistic skills were discovered when she was 3 years old; since then, Katia has constantly improved and enriched these skills to accomplish unique and distinct results. She combined her talent and passion for fine art together with current technology, which has allowed her to perfect these skills and craftsmanship, and apply theory in practice using the topnotch technological advances.
Katia has earned her Bachelor's of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Communication & Graphic Design with major in Digital Media from Metropolitan State University of Denver and Graduate Degree - Master of Applied Science (MAS) in Information and Communication Technology field, from University of Denver, with major in Web Design and Development.
Throughout her award-winning career, Katia has developed brands for clients of all shapes and sizes from high tech to hospitality to healthcare – and everything in between. She joined a team of medical consultants providing regulatory compliance solutions and online learning resources for hospitals and healthcare organizations. While at MCN Healthcare, Katia applied the knowledge and unique creative ideas into vibrant designs, which contributed to successful company’s growth as well as further enhanced her skills.
Her next adventure was with well-established luxury cosmetic retailer. Some of the nation's top retailers include Anthropologie, Henri Bendel, Restoration Hardware and Red Envelope. For the first time, Katia was involved in unique intricacies of packaging design. She taught herself engineering prototypes and applying designs, which led to a launch of a new bath and body line, featured at Anthropology store and many other retail stores.
Soon she became part of a leading provider of in-language and multi-ethnic programming in the United States at International Channel Networks. In her new role she not only utilized her design skills and creative vision to promote and increase sales, but also applied her ethnic background, expertise and language skills to enrich marketing materials.
Then she joined Colorado-based blood bank, which collects, tests, and provides blood to hospitals and healthcare facilities in the United States. Katia provided creative vision, direction and implementation for all of company's internal and external Community Relations projects through campaign management, graphic design, web design, publication production, as well as support and consistency with media and publication relations and advertising efforts.
Her latest venture is with AMG National Trust Bank, where she is responsible for maintenance, design, development, programming and leveraging marketing analytics of three existing Bank's web sites for a privately held bank. She also provides conceptualization, design and development of all company-wide marketing materials, print collateral and online marketing tools.
Additionally, Katia is teaching an introductory course touching on website design, development, programming and multimedia authoring software as an adjunct professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
As a world traveler Katia absorbs enormous amounts of information, and constantly expands her view on design around the world. While traveling she can't help but notice the difference in purpose of design in other countries and how design shapes our cultural attitude. "People are driven by visual communications, and are acceptant of design. Therefore, art is a necessary and important element in our everyday life." That's why everyday she is in search for fresh conceptual and strategic directions for design projects. This allows her to deliver ideas that are effective to the client and little things that constantly adds richness to people's lives.
We are honored to have collaborated with so many smart, innovative and creative clients from all walks of life.
