With a last name that’s Polish for “Friday,” Keri carries herself with a laid-back energy that brings a weekend flavor to every day. While past New York positions had her traveling from Botswana to Akron, many accolade-laden years later Keri has distilled the best from big city design and blended it with the best of Burlington living. An avid skier/snowboarder and mom to two little girls and a baby boy, Keri finds fun in the photo styling part of her job. Especially if they let her sample the smoked meat, cheese and chocolate “props.”

Keri’s branding experience is a “who’s who” of today’s most prominent brands. In New York City she led design projects for Sundance, Disney, A&P, St. Louis Blues, Austin Nicolls, and Seagram’s. From packaging systems to branded environments, Keri’s experience in brand building and design is expansive and diverse.

Before partnering with Place she was Senior Art Director at Kelliher Samets Volk working on projects with Ryka Sneakers. Keri graduated Cum Laude from Syracuse University in communication design and marketing.
