KILN is the brainchild of three mavericks: Gregg Fraley, Kate Hammer & Indy Neogy. We create content and design experiences that catalyse breakthrough thinking. Individually, we’ve earned our innovation spurs working hands-on with innovations like: first-generation internet streaming, a process for 360˚ image capture in the pre-digital age (made for Nike, emulated in The Matrix), the first-ever wireless medical prescription system, the first commercially marketed condom in Castro’s Cuba, landing gear on a space aircraft and …. category-creating pedestrian simulation technology used to design Olympic-calibre places for people.
