Hi, thanks for stopping by! My name is Kelly Dern and I'm a Product Designer living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I help brands and businesses define their vision, understand their user needs, design and test prototypes, and launch meaningful products.

Get in touch: hello@kellydern.com

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I migrated to California to get a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Scripps College and then received my master's degree in Media and Communications from the London School of Economics and Political Science. I spend my days as a Product Designer for Life.io, a health and wellness company based out of Philadelphia. Supporting the design community has always been a focus of mine; I've previously served on the Board of Directors of AIGA San Francisco and am currently a coding instructor with Girls Who Code and also with Designlab in the Denver area. In a previous life, I worked in public relations with a focus in product promotions for global enterprise software companies. I'm also an illustrator, a useless passion project enthusiast and a painter.

I love collaborating, learning new tools and solving problems.

I'm open to pro bono work for causes and organizations which I'm passionate about. Please reach out if you have a project need. If I have the capacity and it aligns to my interests, I would love the opportunity to help out.
