I’m Ilyssa Kyu, a Design Researcher, Strategist, and Founder of Amble, a program for creative professionals to take affordable short-term sabbaticals in beautiful places in exchange for working on projects with local nonprofits and conservancies.

In addition to a decade of experience in the agency world as a user experience designer and strategist helping purpose-driven organizations, I have two successful crowdfunding campaigns under my belt—one for my husband and I’s newly published book ‘Campfire Stories’ (on Kickstarter) and one for Amble (on iFundWomen).

I love helping individuals and organizations further their impact in the world by finding opportunities and clarity in the chaos, while finding unconventional, creative ways of solving problems and telling stories.

Let’s talk about your #goals. Book a free 15-minute consult!
