Kyle Steed


I love to make things by hand. That sounds so cliché but it's true. I feel that our fast-paced internet culture is losing the craftsmanship that once ruled our great land. Everything is so instant these days that I like to slow it down and take my time with what I create.

The strength of my work comes from the basic essentials of pen and paper. Anything more than that is just icing on the cake. I believe without understanding the foundational elements of design and color and composition all the pixels in the world can't save you. So that's why I will always consider myself a student because there a million things to learn in this world.

If you still aren't sure what it is I do, I love to illustrate and draw type by hand. While I have a keen eye for the web, what works and what doesn't, I prefer to spend my time in my sketchbook. But if you're really struggling with the web I can help you do that too.
