Kelly & Gabriel

Who We Are

“We believe purposeful work is about living out your true design.”

What would success mean for you, your family, your community?

Kelly Shields

Creative Lead | Brand Architect

We don’t think it’s a coincidence that we started our business only a year after being married. Business is a lot like marriage: It requires an all or nothing commitment, a dedication to improving someone else’s life, and is constantly changing and evolving. More than anything it’s a relationship that teeters on the brink of give and take. 

Many people live their lives believing that achieving the American Dream requires unparalleled dedication on their part — that their level of success depends on their actions, that they must sacrifice certain things they love in order to obtain it, and that work/life balance isn’t achievable. 

Living for the American Dream this way becomes an exhausting daily grind and, if left unchecked, can quickly lead to burnout.

We don’t believe it has to be this way. Sure, we have dreams just like the rest of you — we want a nice house (ideally a small hobby farm), we want a stable environment for the kids we have one day, we want to travel the world and have new experiences, but we don’t do our work just to achieve our dreams. We work to help people achieve their dreams.

People generally reach out to us when:

  • They try to do it themselves but they need help
  • They aren’t sure what to do
  • They’ve been burnt and need someone they can trust

We provide marketing and branding services because those can be the biggest struggles emerging businesses have yet yield the largest return when improved. It’s possible to achieve your dream without sacrificing a work/life balance. We aren’t perfect at it, but we do enjoy a life outside of work thanks to the many friends and mentors who have accelerated us to where we are now.

Business is more than products and services. It’s people. It’s lives. It’s relational. It can’t be done alone. That’s why we’re here.

Testimonials

It was a joy to work with Gabriel and Kelly because they were able to come into my space and figure out what represented ‘me’ instead of doing something generic. It was truly phenomenal to work with them!

I love my new branding! Stage Grace is now a brand that is inviting and personal. They handled my project very professionally and in a timely manner.

Gabriel and Kelly have been performing SEO for my business for a few months now. I like the ongoing open communication I receive from them. I also like that they offer a lot of extended resources to help me grow my personal business.

Darren Cox, Evergreen Valley Construction and Landscaping

Gabriel and Kelly really captured the spirit of my brand. They were able to collaborate with me to create a brand that felt personal. They were really good at educating me which was a huge part for me to feel in control of my own website.

Ryan Dawes, Alpine Gardens

Kelly and Gabe got excited about the vision for the video and pdf they created for us and took them further than I could imagine. The end result was phenomenal and I was so excited to share them with everyone. 

Hilary Paulsen, Grace City Church

I’m confident that Gabriel and Kelly know what’s happening with my business online and that they understand where I want to take it. I have a lot of questions and Gabriel always has an answer or finds one. They get energy from each other, are a very professional young couple, and have a lot of enthusiasm to help me.

Paul Workinger, Rainbow Carpet Cleaning

Adding Kelly and Gabe to your team is a smart business decision. They are focused on helping small businesses/organizations develop and grow whether it's Web Page Development, Digital Media, Branding, their work is outstanding. But what I equally love about them is the one on one personal relationship I receive as they are solely focused on the uniqueness of my business and the needs I have. Extremely responsive and great at creating a masterpiece every time I use them.
