Kirk Simpson, Graphic Designer
Kirk 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. Kirk is a non-traditional student and a senior at Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine, focusing on Graphic Design with an intended graduation of May 2018. With a strong drive and passion, he creates award–winning designs showing his talent for engaging his audience in print and digital formats.
Recently his poster for One Book, Many Conversations, featuring George Orwell's 1984, was recently seen in store windows and on t–shirts all over Portland, ME. 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. In the Summer of 2017, he interned at the VIA Agency in Portland, ME., brainstorming, creating, and executing design concepts for various clients including CertainTeed, Golden Corral, and Tandem Coffee.
