Kelly Benton

School of Design Representative

Savannah, GA, USA
I am currently studying Service Design at The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). I plan on minoring in interaction design and sustainability, and with this I plan to work both corporately and with non-profits. I have a passion for helping people and I aspire to stay committed to this life goal and succeeding within my career beyond graduation. I design to innovate. By thinking with the end user in mind a meaningful experience can be created through a focus on customer values and what best aligns with both the consumer and provider's visions and collectively co-creating.
