Hi! I'm Kris Kay

An UX/UI designer / illustrator based out of Toronto.

My mightiest magic powers lie in visual identity design, vector art and explainer infographics that elegantly convey complex information in a way that is empirically accurate, aesthetically impactful and understood at a glance by the target audience.

Take a look below if you would like to see some of my past work.

👋Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Here is a bit more about me.

I'm a designer that genuinely enjoys the challenge of conceptualizing and creating artifacts that draw attention to a brand and help it achieve its unique goals. I do this by rooting my work in the psychology of how people process information, how they are affected by design decisions, and the type of value they are willing to trade for their attention. Additionally,I have an all-seeing eye for vivacious colour combinations and thoughtful details that delight those who notice them.

In terms of experience, I’ve been drawing for about as long as I could hold a pencil and taught myself Photoshop and Illustrator back in grade school. Almost everywhere that I’ve ever worked, I’ve gone beyond my job description by applying my graphic design skills to the business’ needs. This rewarded me with a wealth of experience in figuring out new tools on the fly and diving headfirst into unexplored territory. Most recently I have been doing freelance UX/UI work for various tech companies. Mainly delivering user experience and accessibility reports, creating iconography and designing user interfaces.

Distilling communication magic out of data is what I do. So if you're in need of some visual alchemy, get in touch at:
