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 top-notch technological advances.
Upon completing her Bachelor's of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Graphic Design with an emphasis in Digital Media from Metropolitan State University, Katia has immersed herself into the world of graphic arts. Her career has provided the opportunity to work with a variety of clients resulting in award-winning brands and projects.
She began her professional career by joining a team of medical consultants providing regulatory compliance solutions and online learning resources for hospitals and healthcare organizations. While there, Katia applied her knowledge and, unique creative ideas into vibrant designs, which contributed to the company’s growth.
Her next adventure was with well-established luxury cosmetics and home retailer, where she designed and engineered prototypes, and launched new bath and body lines. Her line of prototypes was adopted by some of the nation's top retailers such as Anthropologie, Henri Bendel, Restoration Hardware and Red Envelope.
Soon she became part of a leading provider of in-language and multi-ethnic programming in the United States. 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.
Later 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.
After a decade of work with print and digital media, Katia realized the power and influence the web has over people’s lives and decided to pursue a new career. She earned a Masters of Applied Science (MAS) in Information and Communication Technology with a concentration in Web Design and Development from the University of Denver.
Currently, Katia works as User Experience (UX) Designer/Web Developer for the largest non-profit scientific and educational association dedicated to managing and treating water. Her days are spent developing and designing for a variety of projects and initiatives including websites and mobile applications.
She also has returned to her Alma mater (Metropolitan State University of Denver) as an adjunct professor where she is teaching a course touching on website design, development, programming and multimedia authoring software, and provides her students the skills and education to help them succeed.
