Kevin Sterling
Strategy Consultant

My career began in good old fashioned graphic design, moved into digital production, project management and eventually I spent a while as a freelance creative. I’ve worked in NYC since 2007 and developed the grit to tackle just about anything.

When I launched Bush Smarts in 2012 with John Davison, I connected with my passion for building smart businesses that could leverage technology and sharp aesthetics and our business has been booming.

But I still love helping other people, so I run I’m an adjunct instructor in Advanced UX at NYU, lead Strategist in our group and dig into pixel pushing more often than I’d like to admit…

Michael Hinnant

Michael has been a creative designer and writer since birth. Drawing before he could write, he experimented with various methods before falling in love with advertising design. Michael has a particular fascination with logos, and enjoys the challenge of taking a blank white box and creating an ad or poster that allows a business to speak to a customer. His design aesthetic is fundamentally based with a focus on balance of space and movement of the eye. He is a critical thinker who is always analyzing the effectiveness of designs and how they fit in the current world.

Susan MacLeod

Susan’s first career was in psychology but a life long love of art nudged her back to school to learn graphic design. She was delighted to discover the amount of overlap between the fields. For example, understanding visual perception and the psychology of color is key to good layout.

Working with KTSterling keeps Susan on her toes and she loves that. Each project is an invitation to draw from her 20+ years of experience and to apply new technologies to meet clients’ needs. Driven to share what she’s discovering, she also teaches graphic design – at first full time for a small community college in North Carolina, and then as an on-line adjunct from Chicago and Vermont.

Beth then worked as a freelance designer for companies and individuals both local and abroad. The combination of working with creative designers and her experiences in the mainstream fashion production/manufacturing world led to a broad understanding of the industry. Beth has also trained some local “out of school” youth, and she enjoys sharing some of her knowledge to empower them.
