About the Artist
With over ten years of experience in the creative industries, specialising in graphic design, video production, and story-driven communication, Kevin Robinson is an award-winning artist located in the Pacific Northwest. A graduate of the Corcoran College of Art + Design—now a part of the George Washington University—in Washington, DC, Kevin holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Digital Media Design and has worked in multiple roles across both public and private sectors. Having a passion for wildlife and documentary film, Kevin is intensely interested in narrative-driven, educational projects and holds acclaimed naturalist Sir David Attenborough and the “father of America’s National Parks,” John Muir, as his personal heroes. Among his other influences are Saul Bass, Stefan Sagmeister, Shigeru Miyamoto, David Carson, Joshua Davis, David Fincher, and Ridley Scott.
Kevin has operated camera platforms across the breadth of technology from ENG systems to mirrorless dSLR-style systems, aerial drones to multi-cam room systems, and Steadicam® and MōVI® systems. He has edited on NLEs based on both Windows and Mac platforms including Sony® Vegas, Apple® Final Cut Pro, Adobe® Premiere, and AVID® Media Composer. Kevin is also a federally and NC state licensed sUAS (or “drone”) pilot with experience flying large and small commercial systems from DJI®.
As a classically trained illustrator, Kevin’s design process often starts out on paper before transitioning to the digital workspace, allowing for a more fluid and organic evolution of designs. This also allows him to become much more intimately familiar with the nuances of form within the typographic and iconographic elements of a design and identify any weak spots or issues—like scale reproduction for embroidery—earlier in the design cycle than a purely digital workflow would typically allow.
As a photographer, Kevin is especially interested in wildlife and the juxtaposition of the natural world with the man-made. This dichotomy of organic and engineered forms is often the subject of many of his excursions and urbex explorations.
Kevin is an avid volunteer and a Lifetime Brother of the National Service Fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. Inspired by a call to service through a personal, written correspondence with President Bill Clinton as a child and his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America, Kevin has volunteered since he was 15 years old, when he first became a summer volunteer at the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk, VA. Following in the footsteps of Clinton, he pledged Alpha Phi Omega in his second semester of college and has continued his lifelong commitment to volunteerism since graduation through the Animal Park at the Conservators Center in Burlington, NC.
In addition to Alpha Phi Omega, Kevin is also a member of the American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA), the International Documentary Association (IDA), the Sundance Institute, and the American Society of Naturalists (ASN). He is also a jury member of the Telly Awards' Silver Council.
In his free time, Kevin is a voracious reader and studies wolves, wolf ecology, and wolf behaviour while also studying coyotes and other small canids. As an amateur naturalist following in his heroes' footsteps, his goal is to become as close to an expert on the literature surrounding wolves as possible to assist in his role as an educator at the Conservators Center. He was—for 15 years—also a member of the Center's highly trained Wolf Socialisation and Handling Team, working hands-on with a pack of four captive wolves at the facility.
Kevin is also the host, writer, and producer of The Wildlife, a documentary web-series about the animals we share our planet with.
