Owner / Senior Designer
THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR PAGE!
Hi my name is Kendra Gracie Kuliga, and my goal is to help you elevate your business to the next level. I am the creative director and Cielo Productions with more than 22 years of professional experience in Graphic Design, Web Development, and Photography.
My award winning designs have brought attention to my campaign work on a national level. I have consulted as graphic and web designer for non-profits such as the DC Chamber of Commerce, HIPS, Community Education Group, The Washington Heights Corner Project, Mautner Project and Children’s Hospital. Her list of current for-profit clients include the following: Octane Public Relations, Meridian Pint, Smoke & Barrel, Brookland Pint, 3 Stars Brewing Company, Lock 7 Development, Urban Pace, Remix Recycling Co., Blank Slate, The Brownstoner, Fit 360 DC, Prince of Petworth, and BBQ Sparks.
I am trained as a fine artist with a B.F.A. Maryland Institute College of Art (1996), and studied at the The Cocoran College of Art and Design (1991). With my classical fine art training I take an customized fine art approach in creating designs that stand out from the rest. My focus is to create designs for your intended target audience so you attract the customers that will support your business.
Contact me today, so we can discuss what I can do for you!
We don’t believe in following trends, we believe in creating them.
Our goal is to create unique designs to help our clients excel in their business.
We think differently so that our customers can stand out from the crowd.
Your input in your brand is essential. We will work together as a team to give you the products that help you get to the next level.
We come from a formal fine art background, so your materials will stand out from the rest with creative and eye-catching design.

“Cielo Productions is my go-to company for graphic design. Ken has worked on multiple projects for my company D.Webb Designs. She designed my logo where she provided me with every option I needed (price tags, clothing labels, print) She also designed artwork for my “May The Shimmy Be With You” t-shirt, which people went nuts over!
Every project Cielo productions has picked from me has been a bit hit. Ken is great with following inspiration and is excellent with communication.”
“Ken is professional and provides high quality work with an elevated aesthetic which is perfect for my NYC brand.”
Debbie Despina Cartsos, Owner, D. Webb
“I started my business in 2008 and for a number of years, I went without an official logo. Not because I hadn’t worked with a number of graphic designers; and not because they weren’t creative. No. It was because, what they presented—while nice—just didn’t feel right. All that changed when I met Kendra. She is warm, creative and did something none of the other designers did. She really listened. Even before she put pencil to paper, we talked. About my philosophy, my feeling, and my brand’s mission and purpose. She came to my shop and we talked some more. Her approach is easy, yet thoughtful and patient. When I saw the finished product, I got emotional. I knew she heard me and understood what I wanted—even if I couldn’t properly articulate it. She helped me find the missing piece for my brand and I will be forever grateful. The experience is one that I would gladly have again.”
“I highly recommend Kendra for any creative projects. She’s one of the best!”
~ Glenna Cush, Owner of ShimmySista
“I’m always excited to work on a new project with Kendra/Cielo Productions. After a brief explanation of the basic concept and direction I’m looking for she follows up with questions that really expand and enhance the creative process. I ultimately get not only what I need,
but what I didn’t even know I wanted. “
“She has a succinct ability to visualize my concepts to eye grabbing images that really help my brand stand out from the herd.”
“KEN, YOU’RE THE BEST!!! Working with you on this was a dream.”

“Kendra was extremely patient, creative, and knowledgeable.”
“I needed a website for my dance troupe and I wasted a long time thinking about trying to do it myself. Many go that route but I am glad I finally decided to consult an expert. Kendra was extremely patient, creative, and knowledgeable. She understands the entertainment world and had excellent suggestions about how the site could function. The end result was better than anything I could have imagined and was a true reflection of our group. Kendra is a patient teacher who will walk you through the steps of website maintenance and anything else you need to know. Now I have a website I can be proud of and I will definitely call Cielo Productions again when my website needs to grow or change!”
