Kurt Volkman, an Associate Principal at HED, builds teams that have the necessary skills for proper collaboration. Kurt’s diverse experience allows him to bring cross-market solutions to any project. He is guided by the principle that his teams are an extension of his client’s business; working to achieve their goals through listening, goal setting and innovation. Kurt pushes to get as much information in front of clients early in the process to equip them with the ability to make key decisions.
Kurt's ultimate goal for every design project, regardless of size, is to create environments that strengthen the user experience by incorporating Evidence-Based Design, Wellness, Sustainability, Social Equity and Equality. An important part of Kurt’s design philosophy is “designing for longevity”—by studying trends and forecasting, he creates designs that stand the test of time and are adaptable to new uses.
