About Kaitlin

Over the past 10 years I have become an expert in creative process.

I hold my BFA in Communication Design with coursework in Information Architecture, Design Research, and Design History and a focus on design thinking, interaction design, and human factors. My thesis was “curation as an expression of identity”.

I grew my career in the advertising industry, working as a Planner for some of the most recognized brands: LeBron James, Panera, Staples, Adobe, and Luxxotica.

In 2013 I drove across the country from Boston to LA to start my own consultancy where I built a client roster that included Apple, Beats by Dre, The Viper Room, and Microsoft. I took on projects with some of the most influential agencies in the world including Media Arts Lab, BBH, Deutsch LA.

In search of more space, I re-located to Austin in 2016, where I brought in partners and grew my consultancy of 1 to 4. As the CEO of Current Forward I now focus my time on evolving our services so that they meet the ever-changing needs of our clients, getting our POV out there to drive positive change in our industry and the world, and building strong relationships with our clients that are rooted in integrity.
