Erik Kiær

Client Leadership, Design

I am a member of our client leadership team and have worked on innovation projects for clients based in almost every industry. My very first project was to redesign an airline, and it was then that I discovered the value of applying design and strategy to experience.

Since then, I have continued to try to put humanity at the heart of the innovation process, working in industries such as financial services, leisure and technology.

Originally from Norway, I have spent time designing systems for offshore oil and gas production platforms in the North Sea as well as skiing more than most people should. I live on the west coast of the United States, where my daughter teaches me humility on a daily basis.


B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering – McGill University; MDes in Human Centered Product Design – Institute of Design, IIT
