Hey, I'm Kade

Graphic Designer

Thanks for taking the time to peruse my work!

I’m a graphic designer-illustrator based in Durham, NC. After earning my BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2013, I moved down here from my native northeast Ohio and quickly fell in love with the Triangle area.

I’ve always been a creator, so while the the choice to attend art school was obvious, where it’s taken me since has been varied - the spice of life! I’ve studied anatomy and drawn cadavers, managed photography equipment, worked at an accounting firm, written & drawn a 30+ page comic, project managed hundreds of publications, provided unofficial IT support, designed websites,  animated commercials, designed thousands of print advertisements, printed t-shirts, and interviewed, taught, and mentored dozens of design interns, to name a few experiences.

I’ve been using Photoshop for over 10 years, feel most at home in Illustrator, have grown an affinity for designing data-mergable InDesign templates, and created this very site in Muse.

In my down time, I most love constructing architectural wonders in Minecraft, reading speculative fiction, collecting comics, and sharing stories with buddies outside over drinks.
