Kayla is highly experienced in working with individuals as well as for-profit and nonprofit organizations. She develops branding for artists and organizations, as well as layout & production design for advertisements, logos, magazines, and books.
Kayla is one of the most talented multi-disciplinary designers I've had the pleasure of working with. I treasure her design work just as much as an end-user, or consumer, as I do a collaborator. She excels at perfectly communicating and conveying emotion through design, and knows how to drive both creative and product direction. Kayla's ability to do this effectively across so many different mediums is truly rare and impressive.
I have been an admirer of Kayla's graphic design for some time. Her work combines an informed twenty-first century aesthetic with a solid grasp of the twentieth century essentials of clear, direct and straightforward visual communication.
I’ve long admired Kayla’s design for Nat. Brut and her independent illustration work. The pleasure of this work comes from an attention to the detail of idiomatic design styles (especially vintage advertising art, corporate design, and gag cartooning) combined with a passionate sensitivity to the spoken and unspoken power dynamics that are the historical legacy of these styles in context.
