Bio, Contact, Clients, & Hype

My name is Kyle Tezak. I come from a long line of morticians. My family has been in the funeral business for over one hundred years. I'm the first graphic designer, to my knowledge. They try not to hold it against me.

I'm an independent designer and illustrator in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My specialties include identity design, interaction design, icons, illustration, and art direction. When it comes to my work I like to keep things simple. And keeping things simple isn't always simple. It requires thoughtful research, experimentation, restraint, and an eye for detail.

Let's work on a project together!
