Hi, my name is Jason Kunesh. I am a computational design strategist in Chicago.

My experiences leading Chicago’s digital response to COVID, creating the Chicago Design System, leading an AI for Good startup, and founding a design firm have shown me how design can be used in any circumstance to improve outcomes.

Why Kunesh?

At Kunesh Design I help teams make great products & services through UXAI design. I founded the studio to provide world-class design advisory services to climate, education, government, healthcare and nonprofit outfits.

Working with me you’ll get actionable, direct, advice that works, delivered humbly.

I’ve led, designed, spoken, or facilitated with amazing teams including 3M, American Airlines, the Chicago Field Museum, the Dali Lama Center, Emory University, Fellowes Manufacturing, GE Healthcare, Giant Bike, the Grammy Foundation, IBM, Intel, LeapFrog, Lockheed Martin, the Mayo Clinic, McDonald’s, Microsoft, the NFL, NORC at the University of Chicago, New York Presbyterian Hospital, the Shedd Aquarium, Threadless, United Airlines, Walt Disney, and many more.

I love helping folks apply design to delight customers of all kinds.
