I’m Kyle, a freelance designer driven by curiosity, obsessed by craft.
My inventive and explorative approach to design, typography and illustration has seen me work with a host of international clients, including Adobe, Mercedes-Benz, MARS Inc. The New York Times, Time Inc. and Wired Magazine. Aged just 23, I founded Hacksaw Studio, a brand and digital agency that delivered great results by challenging both ourselves and our clients. This approach saw us named a UK Top 40 agency.
Design, however, never stands still, and so neither do I. In 2017, I took the bold step of setting up my design practice, WilkinsonStudio. Centred around type, brand design, brand identity as well as typographic illustration, I bring insight and impact to every piece of work I do.
My passion for creativity - and my belief in its infinite transferability - has seen me delve into the world of product design. My first attempt at designing furniture, the Phaeton Chair, was nominated for Best Furniture Design and exhibited at Enlightened. Whilst in 2015, I designed the prestigious BIA trophies - a design still used today and one that proudly sits on over 120 shelves around the world.
And in 2017, I launched The First Edition, my first lighting collection. Crafted from timeless polished brass and engineers using laser technology, it’s a stunning blend of old and new that was highly acclaimed when showcased at London Design Week.
Anyway, enough about me. I want to hear more about you.
Let’s work together.
