Kelly Kim


Hi, I am Kelly Kim.
When I was a teenager, I was always painting, crafting and sculpting. I loved that tactile experience. But more than anything I am a person who always asks “why?” As a student of ArtCenter I have become skilled in the power of responding to the prompt of WHY, always asking questions, distilling ideas from others and connecting the missing pieces.

I am driven by the “untouched idea”. I have the curiosity to learn what isn’t known, throwing myself into research, finding the deeper story and immersing myself in the journey. I am driven to find the emotion and sincerity of a brand and its user. I love hearing ideas, connecting the dots, working in a collaborative setting and being a strong voice for a community. I am still asking why and continue to be a student of life.

Thank you.
