My name is Kristin Hare and I want to design a better world.
I believe in a user-centered approach to design and I value including stakeholders and consumers in the design process. From my work experience, products sell best when they fit a customer’s needs and I enjoy designing towards a purpose.
During my undergraduate education, I studied Industrial Design because I wanted to create products to improve people’s lives. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech, I worked as a product manager for four years developing home decor products, do-it-yourself craft products, and power tool accessories for mass retail. While I learned valuable experience managing over $20 million of products and organizing multidisciplinary teams, I did not feel like I was able to use my creative skills to their fullest potential.
In the Fall of 2016 I returned to Georgia Tech to pursue a master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction because I felt frustrated by poorly designed technology and knew I could design it to be better.
Through my classes and design internships with Uber, The Home Depot, and a health startup named Inovar, I have become fascinated with how design can positively influence behavior. My goal is to design beautiful, intuitive, engaging products that help people connect with the world around them. If you need a very creative and organized UX designer who can balance customer and business needs, please reach out to me!
Oh! Some of my other interests include teaching people how to make stained glass, woodworking, petting fuzzy llamas, eating Nutella on everything, and traveling around the world to experience new cultures. I also enjoy talking (for probably too long) about cats.
