I'm a mission-driven designer whose work focuses on human-centered services and experiences as well as systems for inclusive engagement and decision-making. In my current strategic design work at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, I pull from past experience in parks planning, filmmaking, cultural programming, teaching, group process, and graphic design.
Kelly Holohan is a designer activist whose creative research focuses on issues surrounding the LGBTQ+ community, women’s rights, health and wellness and environmental protection. She is co-creator of We the Women, an initiative designed to raise awareness and build platforms around women’s rights.
Holohan’s teaching practice parallels her research interests by fostering the idea that our work as designers has an impact on the human experience. She is concerned with using design to do more than selling a product or service—to convey messages that serve a greater good.
