Principal + Creative Director
Kendall Ridley is the founder and creative director of Element K Creative. Her favorite projects are branding startups and rebranding established companies. Although a California native, Kendall grew up across the Southeastern U.S. and somehow managed not to pick up a Southern accent. She has worked in graphic design since 2002, after discovering the field during an engineering internship.
Kendall’s background includes designing in-house in the corporate world. She directed branding and B2C marketing efforts for National City Mortgage’s subsidiary companies. She also created advertisements and marketing collateral that motivated consumers to buy National City Mortgage products and services.
Kendall earned her B.A. in Communication from George Mason University, where she studied public relations and integrated marketing communications.
Outside of the office, Kendall can be found on the golf course, reading online advice columns, and volunteering with the Junior League of Atlanta. She’s also training for Tough Mudder (and is, quite frankly, a little nervous about it).
