Kind words from generous people.
“Kevin is an exceptional designer and one of my favorite people I have ever worked with. He has not only led all product and brand design efforts for MIRROR across our complex product, but he has also been integral in the development of overall product strategy and direction. I have never received any work from Kevin that is not on-time, thoughtfully constructed and beautiful. More than one round of iteration is almost never required because he is able to quickly understand business objectives and translate them into designs that perfectly balance future-forward design and functional UX.
Despite being part-time, Kevin has become such an integral part of our team that we view him as our VP of Design and a vital team member. On a personal level, Kevin is crazy sharp, funny and considerate—really a pleasure to work with. I fear that my recommendation doesn’t do him justice, but I can’t recommend Kevin enough!”
— Brynn Putnam | CEO, MIRROR
“As a solo founder, Kevin was the very first person I brought onto the team. To say I was blown away by his work would be an understatement: he was the perfect partner to get started with just an idea, continue refining and building through multiple iterations as well as a successful fundraise. Kevin is not only a very talented designer and product thinker, but also a pleasure to be around. He was also incredibly helpful in recruiting and onboarding a full-time Head of Design to replace him when the right moment arose. If given the opportunity to work with Kevin, take it as fast as you can.”
— JAMES RUBEN | Founder & CEO, HELLOSAURUS
“Kevin was the perfect fit for our needs and team- beyond his impressive track record and visual brilliance, he’s collaborative, communicative, nimble, ready to challenge the norm, think outside the box and crunch every timeline, moving strategy and design forward. Taking this next step in driving our digital presence would have been impossible without him.”
— Christina Tosi | Founder & CEO, Milk Bar
“Kevin was an amazing member of our team. He joined us when we were just 2 cofounders with an idea, and he helped us right through to when we were a full team of 8. Working with Kevin felt like working with a full-time, in-house “full-stack designer”. He helped us create rapid prototypes, test our ideas with real users, and iterate very quickly through the ideas maze. He also owned our UX workstream, and created our brand from scratch. Working with Kevin was a pleasure from start to finish, and I very much hope to work with him again on my future startups.”
— MARTIN GOULD | Founder & CEO, THIS ONE
“Kevin is well loved at Casper by every person that had the opportunity to work with him. He remains one of the most impressive product designers I’ve worked with.
He is an incredibly strong designer, but the more remarkable thing about him is his ability to carry ideas through implementation with deep consideration and thought partnership around the broader business.
He’s hyper aware of business and technology considerations around design as well as the current digital product landscape. Not only does this filter into product decisions but also to the people around him. Working with him led to smarter design outcomes. He’s a natural systems thinker.
Lastly but most notably, he has the strongest communication muscle of any designer I’ve known, and can get along and work productively with anyone. He’s collaborative, generous, and builds lasting relationships with the people around him.
If you have the chance to work with Kevin, take it.”
— Eleanor Morgan | Chief Experience Officer, Casper
“After years of hoping to work together, I was able to bring Kevin onboard early as our team was just getting formed. Our focus was on deeply understanding the product landscape and identifying the most interesting opportunities to pursue: Kevin brought his varied experience to bear on the work and we ended up in a great place as a result. Kevin is a great communicator who always adeptly connects the design work to the overarching strategy. For over a year Kevin operated as a core part of our Product Design team, always delivering high quality, strategic work and just as importantly being an important part of the culture we built. I can’t recommend working with Kevin enough and I hope to do so again myself in the future.”
— Alex rainert | Head of audio product, the new york times
“Kevin was the perfect product designer to partner with to take Jumprope from concept to reality over nine months. He is a great problem solver who worked with the inputs of user needs and product vision to design a clean and delightful user experience. Kevin is super pragmatic, efficient and focused in his work. He partnered really effectively with engineers, a branding firm and myself throughout the process of bringing a mobile-based product to life from scratch.”
— Jake Poses | Founder and CEO, Jumprope
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Kevin. He joined us to redesign our flagship VICE mobile app experience, and I was impressed by both how quickly he ramped up, and how efficiently he has iterated on various facets of the design. He’s adept at moving from strategic, big-picture thinking all the way down to the fine details of design executions — often in the same conversation. Kevin is seasoned at listening closely to feedback, then taking the time to reflect and come back with solutions that address concerns in a creative way.”
— Jess Brown | Director of User Experience, VICE
“I’ve worked with Kevin on a range of projects, from early-stage ideas full of ambiguity to complex redesigns that require meticulous detail. Without fail, he brings a combination of excellent design chops and a keen eye for business strategy that’s almost impossibly hard to find. He is an efficient operator, a vital thought partner, and wonderfully generous presence on any team. I couldn’t imagine where we’d be without him, and wholeheartedly recommend working with Kevin if you have the chance!”
— Gabriel Flateman | Co-Founder & CEO: Tomorrow Health, Casper
“Kevin is an extraordinarily talented designer and it’s been a privilege to work with him. He is equal parts creative and analytical, which allowed him to reduce the complexities of our highly technical product into simple, user-friendly UI/UX. Kevin designed key components of our product, and the results were an across the board improvement in engagement and conversion. Very happy with our work together and excited to do more.”
— Adam Rothblatt | Co-Founder, Morty
“I always look forward to any opportunity to work with Kevin! Not only is he an incredibly talented designer with a knack for nailing complex, customer-centric designs that maximize utility and elegant visual aesthetics, but he’s also a terrific partner that feels like true member of our team with a shared responsibility for the success of any project.”
