Kim Lai

Lead User Experience Strategist & Designer

Kim helps clients bring their mission and goals to life online in her role as a UX strategist and designer at Kanopi Studios.

She spends the time it takes to understand what makes an organization unique, then creates design solutions that embody those qualities, helping clients tell their stories effectively, build trust with their audience, and motivate action.

Kim received a masters degree in web design and has more than eight years of design experience gained at agencies and through freelance projects before joining Kanopi.

Kim loves getting into inspiring conversations over coffee and kougin-ammans. For those of you who don’t know, kougin-amman is a Breton pastry named for the words “butter” and “cake” — yum! She also enjoys hiking, cooking, baking, hosting dinner parties, and traveling the world.
