Kira Song


Growing up, I was constantly making and crafting, origami, sewing, furniture- anything I could make with my hands. I’ve always been somebody who thinks through everything, considers different points of view and looks not only at the big picture but also the finer details.

For me, design is crafting a vision that connects the experiential with the tangible. This requires mindful thinking and lots of making along the way. I’m always considering a user’s needs through all touchpoints, from strategy to how my design will be used on a daily basis. Through multiple prototypes and testing, I can truly understand how people will engage and experience with a product more naturally. I believe thoughtfully designed products can make people’s lives easier, smarter, and better.
