Kim Cullen is a design lead at IDEO with 15 years' experience in visual communication and interface design. She strives to create products and services that are both useful and beautiful. She believes that visual form is the foundation for good storytelling and creating an emotional connection.

Cullen has worked in a range of industries -- from big advertising to small technology startups, public classrooms to art museums. Her extensive work with museums and exhibitions sparked her interest in the effects of design on human behavior in the physical world.


She carried this experience to the digital realm, collaborating with engineers at several start-ups.


Prior to IDEO Cullen worked at Adaptive Path, leading UX teams to develop compelling physical and digital experiences in media, retail, health care, and education.
