Chelsea Price

Sr. UX Architect, HLK

Many people have a passion for design, but few can say that they were actually born into a dynasty like Chelsea. In fact, if she lost her finger like her grandfather did at his print shop, ink would no doubt trickle out.

From birth, Chelsea was constantly surrounded by the smells of printer ink, paint thinner and ozone. As toxic as that environment sounds, it didn’t affect her negatively. In fact, it started her journey toward design. After graduating from Maryville University in Saint Louis, she quickly climbed the ranks, paving her own path in the digital space. So, while Chelsea’s hands are unstained by printer ink, she makes her living in the family business — but the tools are different. She’s traded in the woodblocks and printing presses and now she’s designing immersive, interactive experiences for Fortune 500 companies.
