About me
I'm Kendall. A multi-disciplinary designer based in London and graduate of Central Saint Martins BA Graphic Design. Although my work isn't limited to this, I find myself most drawn to briefs and outcomes that use design methods to question and start conversations surrounding topics of digital technologies and the relationship society has with these. Often data plays a strong role in my practice, whether this involves analysing it, gathering it or manipulating it. My strengths lie in print design, but I'm not afraid to jump head first into new areas of skill and tend to involve coding into my work in some way, shape or form. Want to grab a drink?

  • D&AD New Blood. Dropbox Paper: You&AI
    It’s predicted that by 2030, 800 million people worldwide will lose their jobs to automation. That’s more than 1/5 of the global workforce. You&AI is a campaign and digital platform aimed at bridging the gap between humans and machines. You&AI puts humans at the centre of machine learning, making AI more accessible through education, and encouraging collaboration to start the conversation on the future of AI. PENCIL WINNER.
  • D&AD New Blood. Dropbox Paper: beecause
    Last year alone, deadly parasites, mites and crop pesticides caused a 34% decrease in UK bee colonies. With our food chain so heavily dependant on pollination, bees are integral to human survival. beecause is a social media led campaign that spreads the message: if the bees go, we go. PENCIL WINNER.
