Everything starts with an idea … At Kevin Brown Studio we pride ourselves on having lots of good ones. We also value the importance of building collaborative and enduring relationships with a clear understanding of our clients’ needs. We’re committed to helping our clients market effectively to their audience. And we’re passionate about helping them see the power of good design and the effect it can have on their business.


At Kevin Brown Studio we believe the strategies behind creating a successful and memorable design involve a process that evolves through various stages of listening, insight, development, feedback, and change. Key to this creative process is vision, research, inspiration, problem solving and of course, great design.

Kevin Brown is a designer, illustrator, award-winning author and traveler. He earned both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Architecture from Tulane University in New Orleans, a city renowned not only for its eccentric charm and mystique, but for its music, cuisine, culture and tradition; a city ideally suited for the study of art and architecture. Following his time at Tulane, Kevin began his career as an architectural assistant, executing design documents and creating architectural renderings for one of the leading architectural firms in London—the GMW Partnership. There he began to hone his creative skills and developed a strong interest in the graphic and visual aspects of design.

Upon returning to the US, Kevin made the transition from architecture to graphic design. He relocated to northern California and served as designer / art director for Whole Foods Market and Peet’s Coffee & Tea. Kevin soon began to develop his philosophy of visual communication through powerful graphic images and innovative graphic solutions.

Kevin has traveled extensively, having lived in eight states and three foreign countries and visited countless others. His travels have given him a broad array of visual, cultural and geographic references to which he regularly turns to for ideas.

Kevin is a member of AIGA (the American Institute of Graphic Arts) and SAG • AFTRA (the Screen Actors Guild / American Federation of Television and Radio Artists). He recently published his second book and first novel Kindred Spirits, which was recently awarded the GRAND PRIZE by the Indie Diamond Book Awards.

Wow! It is stunning! Better even than my best imagining. Hopefully decades from now generations will have seen, learned and remembered through your bold, wondrous art, the mythical and yet historical mysteries of the Southwest and its great Native Tribes. Indeed, sacred, primordial memories which having been must always be. It is so wonderful! Beyond words really. So perfect I can hardly believe it! My respect, admiration and deepest appreciation are with you all …
