Kelly Hurlburt is passionate about designing services and solving complex system-design problems. She currently works at Adobe, building the future of creative collaboration and productivity for the Creative Cloud product suite.  



Kelly hails from upstate New York, where she transformed her childhood obsession with Kid Pix to a BFA in New Media Design from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her background includes user experience design, illustration, animation, and fine art. She led RIT's college radio station, managing operations and spinning indie jams as a DJ for her weekly show.

In her free time, Kelly is well on her way to become a crazy craft lady. She likes to ditch the computer and experiment with analog making techniques. Her running list of projects includes embroidery, crochet, pottery, clay jewelry, and mixed media. She enjoys staying active with hiking and playing soccer.
