Steve Kennedy

Creative Designer and Marketing Professional

As founder and Creative Director of SK Graphic Design, Steven Kennedy is a highly sought after and recognized expert in the development and creation of online and offline collateral design. His passion for creativity is matched only by his understanding of what it takes for small to mid-size companies to stand out in a crowded and competitive marketplace.

Steven’s Education & Career Highlights

Steven earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University, and spent his early years gaining business-to-business graphic design and production experience working with advertising and graphicdesign agencies in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Working on a diverse set of client projects, Steven developed a solid understanding of what companies are looking for when they hire a graphic designer. Specifically, he saw the frustration many companies went through when it came to the high-end quality design they deserved, but couldn’t afford, due to their limited budget. As a result, Steven left the traditional world of agency design and formed his own agency, SK Graphic Design, where small business owners could receive high-quality Madison Avenue level design without the Madison Avenue pricing.

Steven Gets Small Business & Branding

Steven’s vast experience creating compelling brands and innovative design provides him a unique perspective on the purchase and provision of quality graphic design services.

His use of visual typography, Emotional Relevant design and branding, along with stunning graphic treatments and unparalleled creative layouts separates him from the myriad of graphic designers in the market. The unique approach and breadth and depth of his experience also provides clients the foundation and guidance necessary for designing collateral that brings the vision of your business to reality and immediately gets your customers chasing you instead of you always chasing them.

Okay, So Enough About Steven.

How about you and your business? What is your vision? What message do you want to communicate to your customers?

Give Steven a call or email him to discuss how your company’s goals can be communicated through your collateral. If anything else, Steven would love to tell you about his son’s design skills on the Etch-A-Sketch. Like father like son.

“Hiring SK Graphic Design was the single best decision I made as a new business owner.What I do is not easy to grasp as it took me over 25 years to accumulate the knowledge I have on import and export compliance. Somehow the team at Business Growth by Design managed to capture the essence of that knowledge and experience in less than three weeks. They put it to brilliant use in my company’s new blog, website, messaging and marketing materials. They really are more than a web design firm.They truly make your business their own, as they did mine.”
