Kirk Simpson shapes ideas with words, typography, imagery, and color forming a conduit between the events he creates and his audience, eliciting an emotional bond that communicates and inspires. A lover of acting, singing, and improvisation, Kirk mixes this spontaneity of theater into his design work bringing about larger-than-life work with playful, unexpected results. He is fearless when it comes to his art of making, experimenting with different forms of hand–craftedness before he even hits a computer. With a strong drive and passion, he creates award-winning designs showing his talent for engaging his audience in print and digital formats. 
Currently, Kirk works all over Maine building relationships with agencies such as VIA in Portland, Talley-O Design in South Portland, and Blaze Partners in Yarmouth. He works out of his home-studio KSDesign in South Berwick with his husband Jim, their two puppies, Sam and Bear, and his Mom
He graduated from Maine College of Art in May 2018 with a BA in Graphic Designer after creating his poster for One Book, Many Conversations, featuring George Orwell's 1984, seen in store windows and on t-shirts all over Portland. In 2017 he was awarded 2nd Place Best Overall in the Maine College of Art Merit Scholarship Exhibit and received the Ad Club of Maine's Silver Broderson Award for his design for the Beach 2 Beacon 10K Road Race.
