WHO IS KYLE?

I am a critical thinker and designer that is driven by innovation and increasing capabilities of digital design. As a designer, my mission is to create visually dominant graphics and interface while focusing beyond the aesthetic level.My work is rooted in the ‘less is more’ mentality focusing on usability and finer details. I like to question how my work can evolve to better thrive in a forever changing technologically driven landscape.  I am always seeking experiences and opportunities to experiment in digital mediums.
