Kyle RathjenCreative Director
Hello, my name is Kyle Rathjen and I am one of the lucky few who actually enjoy their career. Being able to wake up every day and do what you’re passionate about is what it’s all about. I’ve known I wanted to be in Design since I was just a little kid in art class drawing apples and shading in trees. The passion I have for design, photography, and life has driven me to where I am now and everything that I’ve been blessed to experience along the way have been amazing learning opportunities.
I am a Graphic Designer, Photographer, and Web Designer with over 13 years of experience. During these past 13 years, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing people and their companies. My time spent at each one has been a great learning experience on my adventure through design. I have learned many valuable things along the way that have helped me be able to accomplish just about any kind of visual project that has been tasked to me. I take great pride in my work. There is a high level of detail and satisfaction that must be met with each of my projects before I’m willing to put my name on it. Knowing that I want to produce high-end content, I have built my career around speed, efficiency, and accuracy. I do have my own style that I choose to use on my own fun-side projects but I am a very versatile designer that can switch styles to whichever look & feel your demographic needs to see, feel and experience.
I learned early on in my career that I wanted to be able to offer more than just being a one-trick pony. I’ve spent countless hours, before and after the workday, progressing my skills and knowledge throughout all of the different possible design programs, techniques and equipment so that I can be proficient in just about everything (not quite there yet, but I’m trying). There are many times where I’m up late either finishing a work project, so it’s done early or creating a fun side project for myself just to have a little creative fun. As you can tell, education and continual growth are important to me. Through my enjoyment of design, I have developed a fierce level of discipline, work ethic, and accountability that is not easily matched. Feel free to keep scrolling to see my design skills and my portfolio items on this site. I look forward to hearing from you.
