KK D Keister
UX Researcher

Researcher. Designer. Collaborator.
Artist. Musician. Builder.

Informing accessible experiences from Chicago, Illinois.

Curious and creative, I am a self-motivated mixed-methods UX researcher with user empathy out the wazoo. I design, run, and analyze generative, formative, and evaluative research to identify, understand, and address user needs throughout the digital experience design process. I collaborate with designers, developers, and product teams to create useful, accessible, desirable, and easy-to-use products. I'm passionate about community building, advocating for human rights in the technological sphere, and finding opportunities for joy in design and everyday life. Reach out to work together on your next human-centered design!
