About

Hello. I'm Kolby, an Indianapolis Product Designer at High Alpha. I’m trying to make an impact on the world through design.

I am a conceptual thinker who is addicted to solving problems. Throughout my experience within agencies, tech startups, and venture capital, I’ve worked with the belief that design not only makes the world look better but that it brings strategy and function to everything. I love asking questions, digging into the 'why', and then discovering creative answers. I am inspired by people’s reaction to cool things, music and new experiences. I am curious about new and emerging design techniques/technologies and motivated by laughter, collaboration, and outrageous ideas.

As a Tech 25 Award recipient, and the President of AIGA Indianapolis, I’m always working toward developing a more thriving creative community and to create opportunities for designers within tech.

In my spare time, I volunteer with the Junior League of Indianapolis, attempt to up-level my tennis game, and on the look out for a new restaurant or coffee shop to adventure to on my bike.

Nice to meet you! 👋🏼
