Kaitlin is currently leading the National “I Have A Dream” Foundation in reimagining their brand and increasing their visibility as they launch a strategic plan to double their program impact by 2020. As a designer, creative director, and communications strategist, she is interested in the social impact of visual communications. With experience in communications design, new media, and the nonprofit sector, Kaitlin founded Incendiary Designs, a Brooklyn-based design & communications firm, in 2013, and has since worked with nonprofits, startups, and corporate clients on 5 continents. Kaitlin believes in a multimedia design process that is both iterative and forward-thinking. In 2015, she piloted Spark, a design education program for startups & nonprofits.
Before founding Incendiary, Kaitlin managed communications for The Futuro Media Group, producers of Latino USA on NPR and America By The Numbers on PBS (eventually leading the rebrand for both of these signature programs). Kaitlin holds a BFA in Illustration and a BA in Anthropology with Honors from the University of Connecticut, as well as certificates in Building Restoration and Traditional Painting Techniques and Conservation Issues from the International Institute for Restoration and Preservation Studies in San Gemini, Italy.
