We help clients produce practical design solutions for work ranging from marketing communications to product and process development. In particular, we’re adept at simplifying complex issues and clarifying objectives so that creative ideas and innovation are more easily accessed.

We use a business driven creative process, imagination and uncommon sense to produce ideas that resonate and capture mindshare. Our experience spans a wide array of companies from Fortune 50s to startups in industries including: medical/healthcare, investment banking, commercial film/video production, software, real estate, manufacturing, academic, automotive and hospitality.
Unique Advantage
Our careers originated in business. So our understanding of your needs is based on first hand experience, not empty language. Our clients feel like 'we get them'. Because, we do.

Additionally, we’re wholly unrestricted. Dated conventions, the latest fads or a faux image that limits innovative thinking has nothing to do with us.
Why Design
We get to scratch beneath the surface and see how things work - that's where it gets interesting. Creating new ideas, reworking old ideas and solving problems is rewarding. Also, we're wildly curious so design work is fun.

Klēn was founded and is operated by principal Jody Kaufman.
Our office is located near the Emory campus in Atlanta. We relocate briefly for snow in the winter and wind in the summer. Visitors are welcome in all locations.

Fit & Compatibility
Fit and compatibility are basic requirements to produce exceptional outcomes. Generating value for clients and feeling good about the work we produce is important. Our goal is to do high quality work with clients we respect. Have similar ideas? Let's talk.
