About me
Hello, my name is Kyle Thompson and I aim to be intuitive through learning from others and experimenting. My favourite areas of practice within graphic design are video and experimental art. I’m excited by the evolving world of graphic design with the implementation of new technology bringing about new and creative ways of working. The world of design is changing, and I think this change can help bring awareness to issues across the world. Things I enjoy are films, in particularly sci-fi, playing football and cycling.
