About Kaitlin

My mission is to get great ideas out of your head and into the world.

As a strategist I partner with agency teams and modern brands to help solve complex problems. As a speaker and teacher, I help folks see the world differently and create accordingly. And as an artist – I practice what I preach.

  • I believe you can design your future.

  • I believe that inspiration is created, not found.

  • I believe that everyone deserves to work in a flow state.

Work With Me

Strategy is a place of play and ideas.
— Jennifer Armbrust

I’ve been doing strategy work since before I knew what it was. With coursework in Human Factors and Information Architecture, and a thesis on “curation as expression of self”, my training in Communication Design set me up for a career of working with companies as they navigate complexity. I’ve helped shape some of the most recognizable brands in the world and partnered with the most progressive agencies and consultancies along the way.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve built my expertise in consumer insights, UX/Design Research, and trend forecasting. When I’m not engaged in client work, I’m speaking and educating my industry peers in an effort to evolve our ways of working.
