About me

Hi, I’m Ken! With 7+ years diving deep into the realms of Graphic Design, Brand Strategy, and Creative Direction, innovation isn’t just a buzzword for me—it’s my playground. I thrive on taking the bland and predictable and turning them into something fresh and eye-catching. Whether it’s crafting a brand’s identity from scratch or pumping new life into existing marketing strategies, I’m all about that unique spin that makes people stop and think. I love playing with digital marketing tools to not just keep up with the trends but to stay ahead, and create trends of our own. I’m a big believer in teamwork—when creative minds come together, that’s when the magic happens. My knack for detail coupled with a relentless pursuit for excellence means I’m all about delivering not just results, but experiences that stick. I get a kick out of every aspect of a project, from brainstorming sessions that feel like a creative rollercoaster, to that final unveiling where we get to wow our audience and leave them wanting more. I’m on the lookout for new adventures in the creative world, so whether you’re a brand ready to shake things up or a team looking to color outside the conventional lines, I’m your guy. Let’s connect and create something unforgettable!
