Kelsey Rodheim

Kelsey began her career journey studying architecture at the University of Illinois, where she discovered a passion for how the built environment affects human psychology, which is most significantly discerned within the details of interior spaces. She remained focused on interior design, and discovered project management as an avenue to develop her love for working with people, passion for teamwork and motivation to build business relationships.

Kevin Budelmann

Kevin Budelmann likes to say he’s not the smartest guy at Peopledesign, but that he’s smart enough to hire smart people. Kevin Budelmann's modesty balances his accomplishment as the president of the firm, a designer with a rather large award horde, and speaker and judge at design events and institutions across the continent. Kevin studied computer interface design before it was cool at Carnegie Mellon University, while gaining his degree in graphic design, and before pursuing further study at The School of Design in Switzerland. Kevin Budelmann likes business and studies commerce.
