Hello, I am Kevin Lewis
Digital and Print Designer
Whether it’s the production of business cards, creating multi-media or a total site re-design, my passion is to make your enterprise shine. The measure of my success is how much more than “just happy” you are with my work, regardless of the nature of that work. Winning digital and print design starts with understanding your needs, and ends with exceeding your expectations. Along the way you allow me to work my unique skills and talents.
Understanding + Work = WOW!
Plus I have an enchanted fedora which allows the wearer unparalleled design abilities. My pet design dragons pitch in on occasion as well.
Seriously, one-color flyers, full-color annual reports, multi-media presentations, animations, video, web ads, complete websites, data analysis, logos, signage, brand development – I enjoy creating all of these, and more, with or without dragons.
More importantly, I work with you and your budget to figure out the best use of your marketing and design dollars, and to produce the results you desire.
My technical “A-game” employs Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier, PowerPoint, HTML5, CSS3 . . . and the sorting of mail! Which is to say, while I love new technology, I excel at getting down-n-dirty if that’s what it takes to get the job done.
My clients include Burlington HC Research Group, New Directions Studio, Williston Central School, Emily Gould, Esq., The Hinesburg Record, Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame, Bristol Bakery and Cafe, Omni Fabrications, Richmond Family Medicine, Farmhouse Center, National Life Credit Union and the Stern Center.
“19 Good, Bad & Ugly Logos” is an article I found recently that may be of interest. Enjoy!

“Kevin has been the driving force behind the The Hinesburg Record and his passion for the paper, as well as for other projects, is clearly evident. He is a great communicator and fun to work with. He is amazingly quick and always gets me what I need to complete a job on time. All of the above, plus his positive energy, make him a pleasure to work with.”
Henry Huston, Principal at Akoua Consulting, LLC
“On every team, on every project there’s that one person who serves to knit all of the interests and opinions into real tangible progress. Kevin is that guy. He leads from the middle with excellent listening, problem solving and a craftsman like pride in providing consistent high caliber results.
“For him “UX” isn’t a category, but really his “true north” when turning multiple expectations and viewpoints into cohesive solutions that all stakeholders can feel some pride of ownership. He prototypes the team’s ideas quickly and tactfully showing, not telling them each step to a better final product.”
Paul Evans, Managing Partner / Lead Project Developer at Adaptive Energy
