Kelly Yamanishi || Owner

Kelly’s background includes 20 years in high tech marketing at a high profile Silicon Valley corporation. She brings to the sign business an in depth understanding of complex project management, marketing communications, and many types of corporate speak. What matters is that over the years she developed an appreciation for effective design, an eye for what works, and the creative spirit to make it happen. Kelly’s always had a great reputation as a word-smith and can lend an editor’s eye to ensure your message hits the mark with a satisfying zing.

Between the corporate world and the sign business, Kelly spent many challenging and satisfying years wrangling offspring, navigating the world of autism, and making stuff. She spent many hours volunteering by serving on PTA and church boards, teaching, at swim meets, and on countless amusing and educational field trips. She is crafty in many ways, especially when it comes to knit and crochet.
