Based in Portland, Oregon, Kelsey is a key player at Daily tous les jours. She brings her expertise in public participation and industrial design to help us make the special mix. Her approach is based on creating great stories, designing experiences to tell those stories, with a careful plan for getting people to engage and participate.
Her early work in Italy and Spain spanned product, furniture, exhibition, public installations and event design before shifting focus towards recent work developing interactive environments in Great Britain and North America.
Kelsey has also developed research work on participatory design with Melissa. The results have been presented notably at the Royal College of Art in London, the Banff New Media Institute and the Istituto Europeo di Design in Barcelona, as workshops and conferences, and led to the creation of goodparticipation.com.
Kelsey holds a BA in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MA with distinction in Creative Practice for Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. She has been a visiting lecturer at University of the Arts London, and the Istituto Europeo di Design, Barcelona since 2006.
