Nice to meet you!

Resume.

Kelly N. Benton

My venture began with my passion early on for the freedom of expression through fine art and the ability to depict untold stories within a visual form. I’ve evolved my talents and skills into the design field and use this passion today by building the bridge between organizations and their consumers. Telling their stories in pursuit of better understanding their needs. I strive to consider all impacted areas within my designs and strategic initiatives while always being customer centric. Through this I also consider the impact on the business and work heavily to align the needs of an organization with the needs of the consumer to reach more holistic outcomes.  

The approach I take is user focused with a human centered design perspective.
Some roles I’ve taken on include researcher, strategist, designer, thinker, facilitator, leader, and many more. My focus areas include, but aren’t limited to service design, design research, user experience design, and design management. My goal is to design for inclusivity within everything I do.

I hope to bring organizations a different background and perspective, in pursuit of a more inclusive world. I also enjoy spending time away from the desk and out in the field building empathy and
helping the community
as best I can. If I’m not doing that, I’m in my studio painting away! Being from the south, I also enjoy bringing a bit of southern hospitality into my processes and relationships.  

Looking forward to working with you!
