Trend & Innovation Manager
Kelly Harrigan is an explorer in both her professional and personal life. Natural curiosity about the world fuels her to uncover the physical, cultural, and environmental forces that shape people’s lives. Connecting the seemingly unrelated dots to inspire new product opportunities is Kelly's sweet spot. While she's comfortable living in the fuzzy front-end, she strives to help others push their creativity threshold as well. At Trig, Kelly is responsible for leading customer research studies, organizing and facilitating ideation sessions, as well as pioneering brand new services with trend research and trend field trips.
Previously, Kelly had the unique position at Silgan Dispensing as a central resource for Innovation that combined consumer and brand-driven experiences with scalable manufacturability. In her role as Design Strategist, Kelly helped develop injection-molded packaging for household brands across North and South America, Europe and Asia.
