Hi There! I am Kristen Kelly.
I have over 6-years experience in Visual Design, focusing on UI designs for the web. I worked with clients such as Verizon, Allstate, Pandia Health, and interned at Helium Creative in Fort Lauderdale. I relocated to the Bay Area to join a wireless technology start-up. Besides creating responsive web designs that shipped to thousands of customers, I have experience in creating marketing collateral for conferences, managing and exhibiting at an art exhibition, presenting a winning concept for a hack-a-thon, and social media management.
Through my experiences I have learned how to work and speak well with people. As well as a passion for understanding the users. Which led to why I am making the transition to UX.
I decided to become a UX Designer to make innovative products while researching human-centered design. I enjoy creation through research, the design process, prototyping, and testing. After obtaining my BFA in Graphic Design working in the industry, I attended a User Experience Design Immersive at General Assembly to learn the fundamentals of UX design. Overall from both educational fields, my favorite principles include the gestalt principles, heuristic values, as well as the classic double diamond approach to UX.
I have a keen eye for creating compositions with enthusiasm, attention to detail and true grit. I see through sharp designer eyes! I love life, people and making every moment count.
Let's chat over coffee today to discuss more.
Fun facts about me: I love caffeine/tea and positivity. I have completed a 50 mile ultra-marathon, can speak conversational Spanish. I love both cats and dogs. I am typography nerd, I enjoy literature, meditation and art nouveau.
I am interested in working with individuals who want to change the world through innovation and a passion for human-centered design. Get in touch with me today. Let’s work together.
