About

Hello! My name is Kyle and I'm a Product Designer from Pensacola, FL. I'm passionate above solving problems through simple, minimal design. My work lies at the intersection of business goals and a pleasurable user experience. There's a purpose behind every design decision I make.

Originally trained as a print designer at the Savannah College of Art and Design, I have a firm grasp of the principles of good design. I apply these principles to create intuitive and engaging products.

Since 2012 I've been working as a Product Designer, mostly for early-stage startups. I love being a part of small teams and having ownership over the product and design decisions. It's pushed me to be a strong leader, a clear communicator and an evangelist for having efficient processes. 

Before becoming a product designer, I spent short stints as a web/graphic designer in small local agencies. These shops taught me an approach to quick, critical thinking and presentation; something that has traveled well into my experience on product teams.

Currently, I am Director of Product Design at Accountingfly, a job board and applicant tracking system for the accounting industry. I coordinate all product and design related projects, from prototyping and creating features based on customer feedback and business needs, to a complete rebrand of our company and marketing assets.

 

skills

I am proficient in the main Adobe apps including PS, AI and ID and work regularly with the new Adobe XD.

In addition to my design technical knowledge, I also write production-ready HTML and CSS. For years I've been working with front-end developers and releasing features using Git.

Strong copywriting skills allows me to communicate my ideas quickly within my team as well as help marketing craft a clear message that communicates the goals of the product and it's features to our users.

Due to my formal training as a graphic designer, I am just as comfortable working in 300dpi as I am in 72ppi.
