Trevor Kinkade Design – About
This is me A Leap to Create

I had to sweat some bullets; turning down a 9 to 5 career with steady pay and retirement benefits wasn’t the obvious choice. After four years of military service as an Officer in the United States Army, I forwent my paved route into corporate logistics to follow my dream as a creative & designer.

I graduated with a bachelor’s in business communication from Arizona State University in 2014 and found my passion for design in the Army. While overseas, I spent nearly every off-duty hour honing my skills and, in the process, discovered how powerful a great design could be in increasing morale.

Using these experiences as momentum, I’m now chasing my dream without inhibition. Following your passion is non-negotiable, a must.
