Yamairah Keller serves as the Content Design and Development Manager for the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, where she and her team make complex information more visual, digestible, and accessible for Coloradans.
Yamairah is passionate about using design thinking to improve government services. In 2013, Yamairah had the opportunity to co-host the Denver Iconathon, a design workshop that brought community members together to help create a set of icons around the theme of Expanding Health Care Access and Coverage. The final icon set became part of the public domain, and is now used in various websites and communications materials. In 2014, Yamairah had the honor of leading the redesign of the colorado.gov/hcpf website, helping the Department earn a 2014 Gold Leaf Award for a website with a budget under $15,000. Since 2016, Yamairah has led a team of in-house instructional and communications designers where she helps creatives grow, thrive, and showcase the value that design brings to improving government services.
Yamairah holds a Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Design from The Art Institute of Colorado, and is a member of Toastmasters International, Stately Speakers Chapter, where she serves as the Vice President Public Relations (VPPR) for the club.
When she's not making design magic, you can find her running after her two-year-old, hanging with her hubby, reading, or fixing typos she encounters day-to-day.
