Dave Kuehne: designer, Artist, INVENTOR

Originally trained as a visual artist in drawing and painting, Dave has spent decades applying those design principles to print, screen and product design—as well as using strengths as a researcher and strategic thinker to absorb, analyze and create better and lasting solutions.

SkullCandy Advertisement (pictured above) and “Magicians: How the CIA Works their Magic,” are two pieces that represent Dave’s work.

The world around us is filled with design: colors and patterns, the complicated and the quiet—a mixture of both wonder and tranquility. Design is finding a balance between all these elements and more. It is—at its most basic level—communicating one idea and letting everything else support that idea. It is learning to restrain and remove.
