Get ready. Get inspired. Get FUELED.
We're designers. We find inspiration everywhere. But what really gets us going is being able to share our inspiration and obsessions with each other. Because of this, we created an event called FUELED.
This mixer is designed to foster conversation with your fellow creatives in a relaxed environment. Following a brief presentation from Knoed to get us going, we want to spend time sharing things that inspire us, and share how they impact our work and our lives. The result should be an energetic and inspiring evening for everyone.
Just make sure to bring along something that inspires you (a book, an object, a song, a food, a record, etc), and we'll discuss it during the group exercise.
Kyle Eertmoed- Partner & Designer
Kyle started his first business at the age of 15, painting murals in his hometown of Rockford, IL. He later graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. He moved to Chicago to eventually become partner of a small design firm, where his design and business experience developed. In 2011, he co-founded Knoed Creative to pursue his passion for helping small businesses grow through creative branding and exceptional design. When he's away from the computer, Kyle enjoys being outdoors, traveling and spending time with his family.
Kim Knoll - Partner & Designer
Kim knew she was destined for the art world when she started winning local Re/Max coloring contests at the age of 6. Years later, she graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications. Before co-founding Knoed, Kim worked for noted agencies in Phoenix and Chicago where she specialized in strategy and design for print, packaging, online and branding projects. She has spoken, written articles and participated as a panel judge on the topic of design. When Kim's not in the office, you can find her making jewelry, at an art festival or trying out a new soup recipe.
AIGA Chicago would like to thank our Event Chair Laura Rafson for helping plan this event.
