HUSH is a concept-driven design firm that integrates digital technology and physical environments to help clients deliver powerful brand experiences.



Kari Fry, PR & Development Producer: Growing up in the suburbs of Indianapolis, Kari spent most of her summers playing soccer and rowing boats. After receiving her diploma from Ball State University, she bought a one way ticket to NYC and hasn’t looked back since. At HUSH, her responsibilities span from producing live shoots, strategizing PR, and managing all social media content. When she’s not working, you may find her mining vintage stores for textiles from around the world, styling for emerging brands, or watching nature documentaries and drinking prosecco.

Olivia Valdez, Business Development Associate: Olivia grew up in Florida and spent most of her childhood outdoors, running through parks and collecting bugs. Olivia came to New York to study but stayed for the hustle. She left behind the beaches and gators to attend NYU for Production of Visual Arts and a minor in Business. At HUSH, she’s found herself wedged perfectly between her interests generating new business, facilitating project opportunities, and leading discussions around HUSH’s capabilities and work. When she’s not working, Olivia fills her time creating stop-motion animations and dancing.
