Profile

Hi there! I'm Kevin Tran, a 27 year old Sydney-born artist and graphic designer currently based in London, UK.

Inspired by the vivid colours and pulsating symphony of electronic light displays, ‘Strobe’ is a retrospective glimpse at the musical festivals and late nights of Summer 2009. These works embody the energy and rhythm of dance music and pay homage to the people, places and memories that define and characterise this time.

In his spare time, you'll find Kevin painting, drumming or trawling through Soundcloud.

Design CV

Design Approach

Kevin is a multi-disciplinary designer working across branding, print, web and art direction. He grew up and studied in Sydney, where he completed a Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication at UTS. Mark is now based out of Byron Bay, Australia, but continues to work closely with clients across Australia to meet and exceed their project briefs.

My design philosophy draws on the ability to communicate ideas, provide meaningful responses and aesthetically unique outcomes. Communication is the foundation of how a society functions, it is an integral part of our everyday decision-making, whether we notice it or not.
