UrbanIxD Summer School

Jenny Kempson

I’m a multi-disciplinary designer with a background in urban design, psychology, human geography, user experience, and interactive public art focusing on human behavior and place-based connections. I am interested in all aspects of design and design thinking including interdisciplinary collaboration, the use of technology in city placemaking, and visioning the future of cities. I’m passionate about projects that strive to make both our digital and physical world intuitive, meaningful, beautiful and connected.

I have worked as a designer, researcher and public artist on projects in Seattle, Chicago, Copenhagen, Sydney and London. In my work I strive to bridge across disciplines and connect physical and digital experiences allowing for greater public impact and engagement. I enjoy collaborating to creatively solve city issues, incorporating user-focused research into decision making, developing a vision for interaction in the public realm – and ultimately creating fun urban experiences.
