Hi, thanks for stopping by! My name is Kelly Dern and I'm a Product Designer living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

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 Sciences. 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 in the Denver area and also with Designlab. 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 and painter.

I love collaborating, learning new tools and solving problems. *I'm open to pro bono work for causes and organization 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 to help. If you're looking for a designer to collaborate, just want to chat or have a question for me, please get in touch at hello@kellydern.com.
