About

Hey there!
My name is Kyle DeVore and I am a independent graphic and web designer. I graduated from George Fox University with a Bachelor's of Arts in Art and Graphic Design. My company, KAYDEV, was established in 2012, but I have been independently contracting design projects since 2006.

I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. HTML and CSS coding is no problem for me and I make sure that my projects take into account current design trends and cutting-edge technologies. For appropriate projects I use my experience with Adobe Flash and After Effects to craft specific solutions.

Some of my favorite types of design are: Logo and Identity design, Poster design, and Publication Layout design, but I do not limit myself to these aspects of design at all. When I am not designing, I enjoy drawing and painting, playing both video and board games with my friends, or volunteering at my local community outreach program managing their I.T. and design needs.

My slogan Visually Innovative is an accurate description of how I approach my design solutions. I try to find a solution that both satisfies the needs of the client and is unique and innovative to the world of design.
