The digital nomad dynamic duo
Kaila and Des met after joining a digital nomad lifestyle program as freelancers.
We became fast friends over a mutual love for travel, spontaneous bouts of dancing, and novelty mugs. Soon, we realized our marketing and design skills were perfectly complimentary and could have a much bigger impact if we teamed up.
Thus, ILI Marketing & Design was born.
We currently travel the world to live and work in a new country every month with a group of 40 other remote professionals.
Kaila has 7 years of experience as a copywriter, community manager, and content marketing manager. She's worked with some of the biggest brands in the world like Orange, Hasbro, the NFL, BJ's Wholesale Club, Cumberland Farms, and more.
Her background as a copywriter combined with loads of experience in digital advertising, social media, and email marketing gives her a unique, holistic perspective on content management and strategic marketing.
She finds the most joy in crushing KPI’s, creating positive user experiences, and saucy brand voices. Kaila is a strong believer in the Oxford comma, a strong headline, and even stronger margaritas.
Des is an energetic and experienced graphic and web designer. After earning her diploma in Business & Creative Arts, she worked for some of the world's top brands like lululemon learning store management and creative design before becoming an entrepreneur herself.
A rare quality for most creatives, Des’ background has made her a strategic leader and given her a deep understanding of business management. She loves working alongside others and problem solving through creative modalities.
Des lights up when connecting with passionate business owners and she believes exceptional design leads to meaningful user experiences.
