Part strategist, part creator and part cheerleader, Rebel partners with brands to achieve the incredible.

Rebel is a marketing studio in Detroit, MI that fuses creative marketing, strategic branding and masterful design to help you launch and uplevel your organization’s brand and ideas.

We understand the immense passion, grit and effort that is required for a small team to achieve huge results. We are dedicated brand strategists and creative thinkers that believe in the transformative power of great ideas, and engage with clients that are looking for a partner who understands their obstacles, supports the passionate drive behind their mission, and creates a thoughtful strategy for achieving real impact.

Rebel is led by brand strategist and lifelong rebel…


Kelly has used her masterful design eye, business savvy and intuitive magic with 100+ small business owners and nonprofit leaders from coast to coast who have called her, on multiple occasions, their secret weapon behind the scenes. Having spent most of her 13-year career leading her own design and marketing business, she brings an entrepreneurial fire that inspires a level of creativity, ingenuity and agility you don’t find in an average designer. Kelly has a unique way of really getting to the heart of what an organization stands for, intimately gets to know its customers, and through thoughtful and purposeful words and visuals, crafts brands that deliver impact.

There’s one thing we know: we don’t know everything.
