Kendal Cinnamon G’15
Position: Product Design Lead
Company: Vitality Group in Chicago
Kendal leads a team of product designers, designs features and journeys for the products, manages the design system, and works with cross-functional teams on product strategy and vision.
After earning an undergraduate degree in public relations and strategic communications, Kendal wanted to dive deeper into coding and digital design. Elon’s Interactive Media program’s coursework, which included coding, design, UX, research and production allowed her to obtain knowledge in a variety of areas and helped her design a specific career path. From front-end development to design and prototyping, video production and editing, research methodologies, teamwork, communication, creative problem solving and confidence, Kendal gained hard and soft skills that she uses daily.
I know that I have found success and happiness in my career because of my decision to get an interactive media degree. Being part of an intensive, cohort program helps you build close bonds with not only other students but also the professors.
