Kaleel is Kala’s User Experience and Branding Designer - he curates the full Kala brand experience, from when you shop on our website up until the moment you’re able to rip open your package. He’s a creative problem solver at heart, with a firm belief that, as long as empathy is involved, design is the cure for all of the world’s problems.

Where did you go to school? What did you major in?

New York University. I did an individualized study titled Visual Storytelling & Aesthetics, combining design, marketing, and fashion media.

What is your favorite part about working at Kala?

The fact that I am able to work for a brand that takes seriously the idea of leaving this planet in a better state than how we found it.

What’s your astrology sign?

Gemini, through and through.

Who is your role model/inspiration and why?

Viola Davis. She is beauty, grace, and elegance all wrapped into one. Outspoken and eloquent, Viola has taught me a thing or two about speaking truth to power and how to give a show-stopping acceptance speech. Having worked in media, I understand how important representation on (and behind) the screen is, and what that visibility means to all the young folks of color out there like myself.

What’s your idea of a perfect day?

Doesn’t start too early, doesn’t end too late. It would be equal parts active and idle; exploring a fun neighborhood or park, followed by a stimulating conversation over coffee or bubble tea. My mind needs to constantly be wandering and challenged, so entertainment in some form, be it a movie or exhibit, is a must.
