Kay Wharton

Production & Design Coordinator

Kay’s experience in design for print and web, managing teams and branding campaigns spans more than two decades. Prior to joining the team at BCA, Kay ran her own company, Wharton Creative, and held positions as an in-house corporate graphic designer, production manager and creative director.

After making the cross-country move from Chicago to SLO County in 2014—leaving those sub-zero winter temps behind—she joined BCA as production & design coordinator, where she facilitates the creative process and pitches in with design production to meet client needs.

A Purdue University alum, her Wharton Creative teams were proficient in writing, photography, design/development, programming and strategy.  Outside of work, Kay has adapted her slalom water skiing skills to the ocean, where she navigates a stand-up paddle board on the Back Bay and Morro Bay. She regularly hikes San Luis Mountain (also known as Cerro San Luis or, yes—Madonna Mountain), where she and friends cap the feat with wine and cheese. She also enjoys beach volleyball, Santana, technology and the Cubs.
