Almost three decades of combined experience in shaping customer experiences for Fortune 500 companies we finally gave into our friends and mentors to create Kirby Kelly Studios and share the love with everyone.
Justin Kelly Beene
Justin's defacto family home has been Salt Lake City since completing undergraduate and graduate degrees at Brigham Young University. His 15 year career in retail pushed him to tailor his skills in balancing the art and science of direct-to-consumer retail. A lifelong fan of simple Scandinavian and Midcentury design, Justins last home was an overhaul of a 1960s modern home in Golden Valley, Minnesota.
Alex Kirby Bowman
Alex's childhood was super normal - usually spent rearranging and decorating his room. (Okay fine, but now you know where the love of interiors comes from) After graduating the Savannah College of Art and Design with Industrial Design and Interaction Design degrees he was picked up by Target to design for exclusive brands like Threshold and Room Essentials. After 5 years he would become the trend forecaster for a 220 person home design group in the company. Shortly after leaving Minneapolis for Boston, Wayfair.com hired Alex as the company's first interiors focused designer to create seasonal stories on the site, in print, and in email. He also created around 50 exclusive brands for the company and was interim Creative Director for AllModern.com during his time there. Excited to be living in Salt Lake City, he's already decked out for his first ski season; in the meantime you can find him scoping out every interiors resource in the metro.
